Deanna Van Notric grew up in Lynnwood, WA and earned her Associate’s Degree from Shoreline Community College. She then went on to graduate from Western Washington University in 1997 with her BA in Elementary Education and settled in Sedro-Woolley with her husband, Joe. Her very first teaching position was in a 2nd and 3rd split class at Lyman Elementary.
After a few years of teaching, she and her husband were blessed with their first son. When their second son arrived, Deanna decided to become a stay-at-home mom while still tutoring and offering private lessons out of her home. Then, in 2004, she started a homeschool cooperative with several other teachers which began her homeschooling career.
In 2007, her sons joined Skagit Academy, and she began teaching classes. Over the years she has been with us, she has taught elective classes, math, language arts, and has thoroughly enjoyed being an advisor, too. Although she has taken a few years off to live in Hawaii a couple times (she and her husband own a business on Oahu), she is now back at Skagit Academy. Miss Deanna considers herself truly blessed to come alongside the families and students at Skagit Academy in their educational pursuits and teach with the best staff on the planet. She calls it “The best job ever!”
Now her sons have graduated, and her daughter, Chloe, is 7 and attends Mount Vernon Christian School. In their free time they all love visiting friends in Hawaii, playing on the beach, snorkeling, spear fishing, camping, scenic drives and walks, play card games (she is highly competitive), camp fires, reading, riding horses, and spending time with family and friends.
