Hello! I am Kristen Hatate, I teach kindergarten. This is my 20th year of teaching, including 13 years of teaching Kindergarten at Bellevue Christian. I have been commuting here for 20 years while taking my three children to Three Points and then to the Clyde Hill Campus for K-12 grades. My youngest son just graduated from high school this spring and started college this week. My oldest married her BCS high school sweetheart and made me a grandmother in December! My middle son is newly engaged to his BCS high school friend and now fiancé. Our decision to send our children to BCS has obviously had a profound effect on the lives of my family. We are forever grateful that we listened to friends whose children were attending Three Points and encouraged us to look into it.
During these unprecedented times, I am thankful for the strong leadership of our district and the decisions they have had to make for us to start school in person (K-6). I am grateful for our BCS community for embracing the many changes and new procedures that have been put in place. Together, we can make this a great year with His guidance and love. Blessings to you all!
