PreK Home


Meet Mrs. Birashk, Pre-K teacher


Dear Families,


Hi, my name is Talina Birashk and I am thrilled to be the Pre-K teacher at St. Monica Parish School. This school has kind and helpful families, wonderful students, and a cheerful, professional staff--I love this school!


I have an AA degree in photography and a BA in Human Development Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I was a preschool Para-educator at the Villa Academy for three years and this is my third year at St. Monica as the lead Prek teacher. My husband Joey (who is a chef) and I live right here on Mercer Island with our three cats; Lucy, Georgie, and Wombat.


I work hard to provide a developmentally appropriate and learning-enriched classroom for all students. I want to help students discover their amazing abilities and get them started on the road to becoming life-long learners. 


I know we are going to have a wonderful year! Please do not hesitate to send me an email and say hello. 


Mrs. Birashk
