Director Larson is also our Legislative Representative

Favorite school-aged book that students should read: “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events”

Director Larson has lived in Tukwila for 38 years. He’s a product of public education and believes “public education is the key to a successful country. I love to see students discover their passions.” For a decade and a half, he has volunteered in classrooms at Cascade View Elementary; he also regularly volunteers in math classes at Foster High School, at the district’s Fifth Grade Camp, and for Cascade View’s Robotics Club. He has been an influential member and Tukwila-student advocate on many regional and statewide associations including the Road Map Project’s ELL Work Group and Data Advisers Group, the Washington State School Director’s Association (submitting and passing legislation), and various state-level committees looking at education accountability and data issues. Mr. Larson often helps students become empowered and engaged by arranging for them to meet officials such as the Governor, state Supreme Court justices, and legislators.

In his professional life, Director Larson worked as a software engineer at the Weyerhaeuser Company. He is affiliated with the National Council of Teacher’s of Mathematics (NCTM) and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). He holds a master’s degree in computer science from the University of Washington.
