Stefania Appia, Parent & Community Engagement Coordinator

First-Year Knight

Ms. Appia grew up locally and graduated from Federal Way High School. She earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington with a double major in Social Science and Communications and attended graduate courses at UW’s College of Education. After working with Tacoma Goodwill Industries as a job developer, she transitioned to teaching in Seattle through an opportunity with Teach For America. She is excited to now be in a role which combines her passion of engaging with families and the community, along with still being able to support students directly.  Ms. Appia enjoys spending free time at home with her family, playing Xbox, and taking pictures of delicious food!
