Meet our Principals

The Brenner Family

Toby Brenner, Principal

Dear Frost Parents,

I am excited to begin my tenth year as the principal of Robert Frost Elementary. Frost Elementary has an excellent reputation as a school with strong instructional programs, caring and talented staff, and a supportive parent community, and it has been my goal to continue this tradition for all new and returning Frost students. I look forward to meeting new Frost families, seeing familiar faces, and learning more about your students this year as we work to ensure that every student is future ready. I would like to take this opportunity to provide a little information about myself both professionally and personally.

My career in education has been varied and diverse. I come from a family of teachers, and I began my career working with elementary students as a children’s counselor. I became a teacher in 1993, teaching in Northern California, Taiwan, and the Lake Washington School District. I have served as principal at both Carl Sandburg Elementary/DCS in Lake Washington and at Jefferson Elementary in the Everett Public Schools, and worked at the district level as the LWSD Coordinator of Technology Integration.

As hard as it may be for some of my students to believe, a principal really does have a life outside of school. I have two children, ages 14 and 17, plus two Shiba Inu dogs named Hachi and Aiko, so my home is pretty active! When I’m not working at school, I can often be found riding my bike through the hilly back roads, driving my motorcycle through twisty highways, or just reading books and spending time with my family.

School should be a place where children feel happy and engaged, and where parents feel welcome and involved, and it is my goal to ensure that Frost is no different. I will be in classrooms and around the school every day, so please feel free to stop by to introduce yourself, as I welcome the opportunity to meet new families. I look forward to continued collaborating with this great community as we work together to make sure every student has a great year here at Robert Frost Elementary!

Sincerely,

Toby Brenner

Dear Frost Families,

I am so excited to join the team at Robert Frost as your new Associate Principal! I look forward to connecting with each student and family to learn how to best support our school and our community. I look forward to contributing to the strong foundation established at Frost and contributing to your success with Mr. Brenner and the school team. I know strong schools are built on foundations of authentic relationships and I want to share some of my professional and personal journey with you.

I first taught in North Carolina after graduating from UNCW. After moving back home to Washington, I started my career in Tacoma in the Franklin Pierce School District in 2010. I taught kindergarten, first, and second grade. I love the engaging environment of elementary and personally recognize the skill and strength elementary teachers possess in creating exceptional learning environments for students to thrive. I spent the last three years in administration, first as a Dean of Students and then as an Assistant Principal for the last two years.

When I am not at school you will usually find me out in the patient pursuit of a distance run or with my 12-year-old Chihuahua, Max! I love learning about people, history, and connections. I want to travel the world and run different races someday.

My goal is to create the happiest, safest, most inclusive school and I know it starts with unity and connection with each other and our community. We are one voice together and we have the power to uplift as we interact with the future each day! Even as we face changes in our learning environments and a creative start to the year, I am here to support our students. I am so thankful for this opportunity to learn and lead with you.

Kindly,

Megan Biever
