Aliverti, Anne

Teacher - Librarian

Anne Aliverti joined the fantastic staff at Bryant Elementary in the 2010-2011 school year. Prior to that, she taught Humanities to the hormonally-gifted at both Eckstein and McClure middle schools. Over some years, Anne also enjoyed special assignments in Seattle Schools, serving as a new teacher mentor and literacy coach.

Although a California native, Anne seemed destined for Seattle, as from an early age, she preferred rain. She received a Bachelor’s in Writing at the University of California, San Diego. She then attended graduate schools at San Francisco State University, followed by Antioch University in Seattle, where she earned a Masters in Education. To become a teacher-librarian (her favorite job, shhhhh), Anne attended the Library Media Endorsement program at the University of Washington, where she can still be seen, on occasion, looking up for gargoyle sightings. In 2017, Anne earned National Board Certification in Library Media, K-12.

When not poring over great books or taking classes, Anne enjoys spending time with her family: cycling, walking, exploring local bookstores, cooking, playing games, volunteering, and tending to two cuddly but demanding felines.

Arrowsmith, Johnathan

Teacher - 2nd Grade


I joined the Bryant staff in 2010 and love teaching 2nd grade! In addition to our regular curriculum, students in my class read Charlotte's Web and learn how to read aloud picture books to K-1 classes. I also teach an after school class called Chance Champs, which provides math extension opportunities around probability. In my free time, I enjoy playing poker, snuggling my two cats, consuming visual media, and playing drums in the Rainbow City marching band and Reign FC's Rain City Riot.

Teacher - Kindergarten

Years teaching at Bryant: This is my sixth year teaching at Bryant Elementary!

A great thing about working at Bryant is: The students, their families, and my wonderful colleagues! This community is tremendously supportive, and welcoming. I am constantly learning new things from my team, and Bryant families.

A reason I teach kindergarten is: It is a such a special and exciting time in a student’s life. Many students are entering school for the first time, and I get to show them how fun and rewarding learning new things among a group of new friends can be! Kindergarteners are constantly developing new skills, and each week can look very different depending what we are ready to learn next. Our classroom and grade community is supportive and full of love by the end of the year, and it is amazing to be a part of that process.

Something I enjoy about kindergarten is: Our enthusiasm, energy, and curiosity. If students are interested in a topic, we have the time to investigate it with them further, and learn along with them!

A piece of advice I offer to help students and families adjust to kindergarten is: Communicate with your student’s teacher. The more we understand, the more we can support your child and family.

Edgbert, Mark

Music Specialist K-5

I love making, teaching and performing Music (and the Arts)! My major instruments are piano and voice, but I can play most instruments (some with squeaky sounds!) I have been a member of the Seattle Men's Chorus since 2003.

I was raised in Tacoma, went to college in Idaho and have been a Seattle resident for 17 years. My partner, Chris, is also a Seattle Public Schools teacher (as a librarian).

I love teaching the students  and look forward to seeing the students' skills grow in music class.
