Hi! My name is Reiane (pronounced ree-ann), and I am a proud Filipina-American with a wonderful passion for early education and anything that has to do with making food. I am a graduate from the University of Washington with a B.A. in Early Childhood and Family Studies. I moved around quite often in my childhood as part of a military family, and the diverse and ever-changing communities I grew up in fostered and nurtured my great love for learning about other cultures, ways of thinking and, most importantly, delicious recipes to try. I’ve been quite fortunate to have lots of great educators who provided hands-on experiences in the things I love to learn about, and I want my students to have these opportunities as well. I hope my experiences and enthusiasm for early education will contribute to the growth of my students, families and everyone in our Hilltop community.
