Lisa Treadway, Director of Good Samaritan School

I was born in New Jersey and grew up in California. 22 years ago we moved our young family to Washington, settling on the Plateau. It has been a wonderful place to raise our three (now grown) children. Over the last 20 years I have enjoyed working with children through volunteer opportunities in the local schools, my church and community organizations such as Hope Link and United Way’s Bridge to Basics Program. I have been teaching preschool for 14 years now and can’t get enough of the energy, honesty and beautiful smiles this age group has! In 2009, as my last child prepared to go off to college, I decided to return to school to complete my degree. I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, with an emphasis in Children’s Studies in 2011, and completed my CDA (Child Development Associates) training in 2012.


I enjoy reading, walking, gardening, and sharing good food and laughter with family and friends. I’m looking forward to a wonderful year working with the incredible families and staff of Good Samaritan School.


Deanna Moreno, Administrative Assistant

Originally from Virginia, I met and married my husband while serving an enlistment in the Air Force.  We relocated to his home state of WA in 1990.   My professional background is in Administration focusing on Human Resources and in Catering & Hospitality.  My personal background has always included children.  I have been an active volunteer in my children’s schools for the last 15 years and worked as an assistant teacher in a co-op preschool for 6 years before joining the staff at Good Samaritan.  I have 4 children (2 boys, 2 girls, ages 19, 15, 13, and 11 years old) and feel blessed to be able to share my days with your preschoolers.  It allows me to see the world through a child’s eyes over and over again.  My spare moments are filled with family and friends and going on long walks along the river behind our home.  I also love to travel, cook, watch cooking shows, crochet, scrapbook and am always planning the next occasion to celebrate. 

Ellie Spivey, Lead Teacher

Preschool 3’s class

I moved to the US, and landed in Washington in February 2014 with my husband and our two dogs. We moved into a farm house in Kirkland, and inherited two more dogs! from a family member. 

I gained a degree and masters in Psychology within the UK (which is where I am originally from) I worked for many years with individuals/children with profound and multiple learning disabilities, and prior moving to the US, designed total communication guides for the organization I was working for to help multidisciplinary teams support communicate and support individuals effectively. I have a lot of experience working with autism and sensory issues within children.

I have always been actively involved in working with children; from nannying to teaching martial arts, to being the one that occupies all of the children at family occasions! I love how little minds are open to exploring the world and learning from play and creating.

When I am not working, I am dog walking, hiking, reading, creating art, restoring furniture as well as lots of other crafty things.

The Children and staff at Good Sam make it a daily pleasure  and I have lots of fun and joy watching everyone learning and growing before my eyes.


Susan Schreiber, Lead Teacher

Pre-Kindergarten 1
I have been a happy Sammamish Plateau resident for more than 15 years. I live with my husband, two kids, and two naughty dogs. After taking several years off to raise my children, I am excited to return to preschool in the Raccoon Room. My past educational experience includes working with preschoolers and teaching art to elementary school students. When not covered in finger-paint I enjoy reading, writing novels, hiking, hanging out at the beach, and spending time with my family.

Jane Hammond, Lead Teacher

Pre-Kindergarten 2
After graduating, with a Bachelor of Education degree from Nottingham University, I spent many years teaching young children in the UK.  While taking a break to raise two daughters, I moved to the United States with my husband who had taken a job in the aircraft industry and resumed teaching in 2008.  Since that time I have taught Pre-K children at local schools and am now very excited to join the Good Samaritan School.
My interests outside of school include fitness, gardening, cooking and supporting my two daughters through college!
I look forward to meeting and working with all the new children, parents and the staff at the Good Samaritan School.
