Gretchen Nordleaf-Nelson, Board President
Gretchen, a Bremerton Native, has enjoyed working and learning with students for over 30 years in four different states. She came home to Kitsap County in 2013 to care for her parents during their twilight years and teach the IB curriculum with West Sound Academy, in Poulsbo. She holds a B.A. in Secondary Education - Theatre and English from WWU and a M.A. in Theatre Administration from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. She believes that the Kitsap Children’s Museum “will provide the children in our community with a safe space to be creative investigators of the world around them both in a local context as well as global."
