Shannon Moe

Rainier Prep
Dean of College Success
Seattle, WA
Shannon Smith Moe loves working at Rainier Prep because “I collaborate daily with a community of talented educators in our shared goal of improving our craft and offering the best education possible to our students.  Our flexibility as a small charter school allows us to work closely with families to quickly adapt to the ever-changing strengths and needs of our students.” The most inspiring part of her job is watching our students develop a strong sense of agency and seeing the meaningful leadership roles they take on in their community and high schools.  

When not working, she likes traveling, relaxing, or exploring the outdoors with her young son and husband. Before joining Rainier Prep, Ms. Moe served 2 years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Paraguay, South America and 6 years teaching Biology and AVID at Federal Way High School. She would like to learn how to play the violin!

Shannon attended University of Washington (BS, BA) and Harvard (M.Ed).
