School Board

What does it mean that Shoreline Christian School is run by its' parents? The School Board is made up of parents and community members elected by the members of the Shoreline Christian School Society. This group is responsible for making policy decisions, hiring the administrator, and recommending the annual budget. They also volunteer their time and efforts even further by serving on various committees that help over see the school's processes. School Board members serve 3-year terms and elections take place at the spring Society Meeting each year.

Meet Your 2017-2018 School Board

Andrea DeYoung, President -- Executive Committee​

I am grateful to serve on the SCS School Board since 2014. Our family has been a member of the Shoreline Christian School since 2011. I am the proud Mother of boy/girl twins who are now in the 5th grade. We attend Lake Forest Park Presbyterian Church. My husband is a General Contractor and has his own business. I work full time at Microsoft. We love to road trip, play outdoors and spend time at home working on our house and the yard.

Nate Burke, Vice President

A Washington, D.C. transplant as of 2004, Nate Burke has a diverse background in both education and work experience, including music, history, ministry, marketing, and digital analytics. He and his wife Rachel have three young children in various grades at Shoreline Christian and have loved the experience and are happy to try to give back in any way possible.

Jeff Weaver, Secretary

I am a software consultant, husband to Denise, and father to Sophie (18) and Kelso (22). I live in Kenmore and we attend Northshore Community Church in Kirkland. Ministries I'm currently involved in include Kiros and Cascade Fellows. In my spare time I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping with the family and geocaching.

Judy Guion, Treasurer

I went to college to become a CPA, but God had other plans. Afterworking as Director of Finance for 7 years I was called to stay at home and be a mom of four kids. After homeschooling my children for ten years God redirected our path and brought us to Shoreline Christian.

Tom Rietkerk

Tom is an SCS alumnus, married to Denise, father to one SCS alum (Kyle) and one current student (Anna). Tom works for CBRE and in his spare time loves family time to include camping and traveling. Denise and Tom moved back to Seattle in 2011 after retiring from the military and immediately enrolled their kids at SCS.

I am thrilled and blessed to be involved with Shoreline Christian School! Having been at SCS since 2010, my three kids are currently 4th and 2nd graders. I work as a Civil Engineer during the day and am a member of Grace Church Seattle. In my free time, I cheer on and keep up with my kids, and dream of traveling in Europe with my husband, Adam.

Our family joined SCS 8 years ago, when our older daughter started preschool there. Lilli is now a 6th grader, Leyni is in 4rd grade and I am excited to begin my first term on the board during the 2016-2017 school year. My background is in Marketing and Project Management but I have been a self-employed Jewelry Designer for the last 6 years. We attend Bethany Community Church where I serve as a women’s bible study leader. Outside of school and church our family enjoys day trips around the Seattle area and travelling home to Germany to see family and friends.

Cheryl Parker

I am eager and thankful to serve on the board. Our daughter Jordan first attended SCS in 1st grade, now in 5th and our son Luke first attended in preschool, now in 2nd. As a family of entrepreneurs, I own a pet care business and my husband Aaron owns a hair salon. We enjoy family bike rides, nature outings and all around fun. He and I love the many adventures our kids bring and we are grateful and appreciative they can attend SCS. We are extremely blessed to be part of the SCS community.

Joe Filbrun

My wife, Debbie, and I have 5 children, four of whom are school-age and attend SCS (11th, 9th, 5th, 2nd). I have a passion for education, not simply as technical training for employment, but as a holistic act of faith and worship in community, for living out a call to respond to our Creator in all of life. I love to work with my mind and my hands, enjoy a well-timed joke, and love helping kids build confidence and community on the basketball court.
