Ms. Julie Harris, Principal

I am the proud principal of this amazing school community.  I came to Pathfinder with experience and understanding of the Mukilteo School District, having served as the assistant principal at Olivia Park and Lake Stickney Elementaries previously.  My experience as an educator also includes teaching primary grades as a classroom teacher, special education teacher, teacher in a highly capable program, and teaching and growing school staff as an instructional coach.    

I have a strong passion and commitment to helping our youngest students in the district develop a love for school and learning.  As a kindergarten and preschool center, we have a unique opportunity and ability to provide an exceptional first learning experience that is safe, welcoming, and targeted towards students’ developmental needs and readiness.  Our staff and I are committed to creating a truly remarkable first year of school for your child.  

In addition to my love for education, outside of work I look forward to spending time with my busy family of 5.  We enjoy being active and seeking out new experiences that we can share together.  

I’m looking forward to the year ahead and welcoming our newest class of scholars and their families to our special and spectacular community!

Miss Melissa Walker, Dean of Students

As a child, I grew up in the Mukilteo School District.  I knew I wanted to be part of the same community as an educator.  I taught fifth grade for 16 years in the district. During that time, I worked at Horizon and Odyssey Elementary.  While watching my son learn through imaginative play in preschool, I decided to make a change so I could work with younger students.  In 2017, I became the Dean of Students at Pathfinder Kindergarten Center, which was the same year my son started kindergarten.  We frequently told our friends that we started kindergarten together!  One of my goals is to help our students develop a love for learning.  I want students to understand the endless possibilities that come with attending school every day!
