Jan Burnham, Director of Shorenorth Co-op Preschool and Teacher of Baby ‘n Me, Explorers, Toddlers and Movers Classes

Jan Burnham began her studies at Central Washington University, later earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and her teaching degree from Seattle Pacific University. She then went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Integrated Curriculum from City University.

Jan taught in the Shoreline School District for 11 years before coming to Shorenorth, where she has been our beloved Director and Teacher for 15 years. “Who else has a job that they can hardly wait to get to?” she is known to say. After 25 years of working with parents and children, developmentally appropriate early childhood education is Jan’s primary focus and true passion. She is also a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), and teaches an online class at Shoreline Community College on Parent Education.

Jan and her husband Monte raised their two now grown daughters in Shoreline. When she’s not watching young families and precious children grow, you’ll find her at home in her garden, in her kitchen regularly testing out new recipes, and staying up way too late to read.
