“Let the children come to me and do not hinder them,
for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven .” Matthew 19:14
Hello! I’m Mrs. Arildson and I’ve always loved being in the classroom – look at the joy on my 6-year-old face! I hope to bring that joy into our classroom this year. I feel very blessed to be a part of your child’s educational journey!
I am a native Washingtonian, and live in Bellevue with my husband, Dan. We’ve raised three boys – twins, Sam and Jack, and “singleton”, Max Henry. I earned my teaching certificate through the University of Washington and received my Master of Education degree from Seattle Pacific University. During my career as an educator, I have taught 1st – 4th grades with the Archdiocese of Seattle, Bellevue School District, and Mercer Island School District. I also teach Faith Formation at my parish, St. Louise.
Looking forward to a wonderful year at St. Madeleine Sophie School!
