  •  Devan Mansfield

    We welcome Devan Mansfield to the Little Braves' Preschool. Devan was selected for this position because she is passionate about students and loves helping kids become independent.

    Devan was a substitute in the Preschool prior to accepting this position, so she is familiar with the kids and the families already. Below is her bio to get to know her a little better. Being that it’s a new year, and this is a new job (exciting!) I’d like to introduce myself to you all. My name is Devan Mansfield. I’m thirty-six years old and was born and raised in Skagit County. Specifically, Conway. I have been married for twelve years and my husband (Tom) and I, have three beautiful children; Lenae(15), Paul(10), and Teddy(6). We currently have a five-acre property in Conway where my children, and our border collie Willy, love to run and play. My family had a dairy farm on Fir Island for over one-hundred years and I have a proud family legacy spanning many generations in this Valley. I cannot tell you how excited I am to be joining Little Braves' Preschool. What started out as a para-ed position that was meant to be temporary, soon felt like I had found a new place to call home. All of these incredibly bright, special, wonderful kids are a joy to be around, as well as teaching, and Coral and Joreen are the best teachers anyone could hope to work with. They love these kids! I feel very blessed to call Little Braves' Preschool and the La Conner School District, my place of employment. I look forward to helping the children learn and grow in all the best ways, and I know that they will educate me as well. I also look forward to meeting all the parents and families of these special little people, and I hope for a wonderful new year at Little Braves' Preschool.

  •  Melanie Kooch

    We welcome Melanie Kooch to the Brave family as the newest SPED Paraeducator in the High School. Melanie was selected because she genuinely cares about others and wants to make a difference, has SPED experience, and inspires confidence in those around her

    Melanie has lived in La Conner since 2015 when her family relocated for her two children, Madison and Michael, to attend La Conner High School, which was their Best Decision Ever! She has worked in Accounting/Bookkeeping for 30+ years, taking a few years off to homeschool 2 of their 3 children while owning and operating a quilt and fabric shop. After Madison and Michael started high school, they decided to close their business to be a bookkeeper for a local sod farm until now with an opportunity to follow her dream of working for La Conner School District. Melanie applied for a paraeducator job because she enjoys helping children succeed and feels she is a good fit for our La Conner School system. Melanie loves La Conner schools, our community, and is looking forward to working with our students. In her spare time, Melanie enjoys family time, knitting, and quilting. Their oldest daughter recently celebrated their 1-year anniversary with her husband and they currently live in Spokane. Michael also lives with them and works for the postal service. Madison lives at home to help with her aging grandparents. Melanie is always looking for an opportunity to help others and to make her community a better place to live. She feels lucky to call La Conner home and be able to share my excitement about this town. You will see her family attending many local athletic events. Go BRAVES!!!
