Family Liaison Information

  • My name is Anne Marie Tennison and this is my first year as the Family Liaison at Nautilus School.   I’m very excited to work with you as a partner in your student’s academic success. I have been working with the Federal Way School District for 2 years as a para educator and emergency substitute teacher, so I may look familiar to you.   My prior professional experience has included working as a Family Liaison/Advocate for an elementary school and in an Early Head Start Program.  I’m looking forward to meeting and connecting with you to help promote the academic success of your students here at Nautilus.

    The role of a Family Liaison is to support families so that they are

    1. Informed: Ask questions. Get to know school staff and understand the policies that affect your student’s education.
    2. Prepared: Have a plan. Help your student and school staff understand your expectations and beliefs about respectful partnerships and a good education.
    3. Connected: Share ideas. Help school staff discover meaningful and effective ways to support your involvement at home and in the school.

    I look forward to working with you and I invite you to stop by, call (253-945-3407) or email ( if you have any questions or ideas to share.
