Liliana Benavides

I love helping families in need, and building a relationship with them is crucial for me. When they reach out to me and I help them to meet their basic needs such as food, housing and medical care, parents experience less stress. This is good for our students to be successful at school.

Mariela Stockdale

Being a Graduation Succes Coach at Highland has brought many accomplishments to my professional and personal life. Every day I work with students on self-advocacy, communication skills, accountability and goal setting to prepare them for success in high school and beyond.

We are happy to be in Bellevue because of the innovative educational opportunities that make Bellevue School District unique — including the integration of Computer Science into our science classes. My daughter's favorite part of 8th grade science was the opportunity to learn how to use computer modeling to explore magnetism, including understanding conditional variables. The Bellevue Schools Foundation has been the key funding partner allowing Bellevue to offer relevant learning opportunities like these to every one of our students, ensuring they have the educational foundations to succeed in whatever they do.
