Joelle Price – P.E. Teacher

 I was raised in south King County, where I lived prior to moving to Bellingham in 2008.  I had the blessing to stay at home with my children, along with their cousins, while they were all young.  Now that the children are a bit older I attend Western Washington University. My program of study is Special Education/Elementary Education. In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside, whenever possible.  I went on a most amazing trip to Mt. St. Helens this past summer.  I have a passion for all music and I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends and making adventures with my kids.
