Balkan Foster, Boo

š?qacib Teacher Title VI Program, Huchoosedah -Indian Education


I attended the University of Washington where I earned my BA and was a member of the Varsity Women's Crew team. I earned my MAT from Seattle Pacific University.

Prior to joining the Native Education Department and partnering with Chief Sealth International High School and Denny International Middle School, I taught at Middle College and American Indian Heritage School.

Being an educator is a gift. I love my students and am humbled to be part of their stories.

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my spouse and our two daughters.

I am a Jicarilla Apache descendant and also adopted Makah into the Turk Markishtum family.  I believe quality teaching is an act of love.

Please reach out to me should you have questions.
