I join Brookside after leading Sunnyside Elementary School in San Francisco since 2010. Prior to my work there, I completed my graduate work at UC Berkeley, worked as an elementary instructional coach, and taught upper grade elementary students in San Jose. As Sunnyside’s principal, I worked closely with the staff and community to build upon existing structures at the school enhancing student engagement and achievement. Our work together culminated in Sunnyside receiving the California Distinguished School Award in June 2014. I look forward to working with Brookside’s staff and community to further develop the instructional program here for the betterment of our school and students.
The Brookside staff has prepared the following list of recommended supplemental school supplies. It helps the school year get off to a good start if children are able to bring their supplies the first day of school. Please mark the large items such as backpacks, ring binders and crayon boxes with your child’s name in permanent marker.
All Grades (except 4th) are requesting hand sanitizer to keep in the classroom for use during the year – pump bottles or refills would be very much appreciated!
PTA has selected 5th grade teacher Josephine Jordan as Brookside’s Outstanding Educator.
Additionally, Jody Schlachter was selected as Brookside’s Outstanding Advocate.
Congratulations to both Josephine and Jody!

We will be having a BKS Traffic Safety Forum April 1st at 7 p.m. Principal Kathryn Noble, Kevin Rodgers, and Mayor Mary Jane Goss will be attending. We are waiting to hear back from the Chief of Police of LFP, City Administrator and the City Engineer of LFP. It will be an opportunity for parents, school and city administrators, tax payers, and BKS staff to address concerns and hopefully open up dialogue to put the wheels of change in motion. We invite you to attend and ask that you please invite your BKS peers.
