Meet Amy Frost

What’s your day job?

I teach AP European History and US History at Lynnwood High School in the Edmonds School District.

How long have you been serving on the PESB?

I am brand new to PESB, May was my first meeting.

What drew you to becoming a PESB member?

Recently, I had the opportunity to become a certification  trainer for  the Washington Education Association and that work inspired me to learn more about certification issues in the state. Since the PESB implements and creates policy around certification, I found myself referencing the website for information. This inspired me to apply to the board. Additionally, I am a high school social studies teacher, so the opportunity to discuss and implement education policy definitely interested me as a way to practice what I teach in regard to civic involvement. 

What are you most excited about in your work as a PESB member?

I am excited to have the opportunity to discuss issues that affect teaching and learning throughout the state. Moreover, I enjoy hearing about all of the work happening across the state around issues of equity and teacher retention.

What are your most meaningful takeaways from your time on the Board?

I just started on the Board, but so far my most meaningful take away would be that an individual's voice is important. Decisions are discussed very thoughtfully and both community input and Board member's individual experiences are critical factors in making informed decisions. 

How would you encourage the Board’s stakeholders to become involved or more knowledgeable about the Board’s work?

I think the website is an amazing resource. Also, I would encourage people to participate in the community input sessions on issues they care about. 

What’s your favorite dessert?
