The Children’s School Board of Directors
is pleased to announce the appointment of
Dr. Mary Lloyd as our new director.

Ms. Lloyd brings an extensive background in education, as well as nearly 20 years of involvement with TCS. She first taught the Pre-3 M/W Class with Barb Friedhoff back in 1995. In addition, she helped start, and is still an active member of, the TCS Board.

Ms. Lloyd attended Seattle University where she earned her master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and her doctorate in Educational Leadership. Along with teaching both children and adults, domestically and abroad, she has operated her own consulting firm, providing professional and instructional services for a myriad of organizations – www.marylloydconsulting.com.

Ms. Lloyd lives in Ballard with her husband Gary Meikle and their pooch Finley. Gary too has been busy with new ventures, having recently launched his own local business Red Grotto, where he is building and selling outdoor pizza ovens. Together they enjoy good food and libation, chasing surf along the northwest coast, and spending time with close friends.
