I am a 32-year veteran teacher who brings her energy to the classroom supporting students as they discuss, perform, debate, and write their ways through academic work. Though born in Ireland, I grew up on the East Coast, mainly in New York. I received my B.A. from the State University of New York College at Oswego and my M.A. from Fordham University. A National Board-Certified Teacher, I have taught in Catholic schools, public schools, and Seattle University. In addition to teaching, I stay active at TCS through several leadership roles.

Casey, Barbara Dr.


As an Instructional Leader, I have worked 27 years as an administrator (Kent-Meridian, Garfield, Interagency, Support Prevention and Intervention - MTSS/PBIS -SPS and delete Ballard, and now TCS) and as a high school science teacher (Sammamish and Newport HS - Bellevue SD), along with 12 years’ experience as an Adjunct Professor at Ashford University, Antioch U, City U, and SPU. My professional experience in schools includes strategic planning and guidance of organizational policies such as CSIP (Continuous School Improvement Plan) implementation and MTSS/PBIS intervention; proven abilities in data driven decisions in curriculum alignment and summative assessments such as EOC,HSPE, SBA and teacher directed formative assessments towards closing the opportunity gap for student learners.

I believe that how we lead matters in the moment, in the month, in the day, in the hour and in our lifetime.

One of the teachers who helped open The Center School in 2001, Jon Greenberg teaches poetry and 12th grade humanities, which integrates AP Language & Composition with American Government and Contemporary World Problems. He is not as funny as he thinks he is.

Hayes, Michele

Counselor, Homeless Program/McKinney Vento Program Building contact

This is my third year at The Center School. I have been an educator for over 20 years, working as a teacher, coach, and counselor. In my early career I worked in Everett and Mukilteo, and then moved to Las Vegas and worked in the Clark County school District. I moved backed to the Pacific Northwest seven years ago and worked at University Prep in Admissions for five years.

I received my bachelor's degree from Washington State University, where I also was a member of the Women's track and field team. I earned my Master's degree while working and taking care of my family at the University of Phoenix in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have a twenty four year old son and a fiancé who is a teacher in Seattle Public Schools.

I enjoy the outdoors when it's warm, reading, and meeting other people's dogs.
