Mountlake Terrace High School alumnus Julie Stroncek has a new job, overseeing athletics for the entire Edmonds School District.
She replaces former District Athletic Director Jan Beglau, who is now the district’s director of special education.
Stroncek, who was a three-sport athlete (volleyball, basketball and softball) in high school, has a long history with the school district. After graduating from MTHS in 1984, she received her bachelors in math education from Western Washington University, then taught and coached volleyball, basketball and track at Alderwood Middle School for eight years, from 1989-1997. During that time she also earned a master’s in math education from the University of Washington, in 1993.
In fall 1997, Stroncek transferred to Edmonds-Woodway High School, where she taught math for four years before taking a job in 2001 as athletic director at Juanita High School in the Lake Washington School District. Three years later, Stroncek — who also earned a master of science in sports administration from Seattle Pacific University in 2002 — returned to EWHS as the school’s athletic director (and continued to teach math).
Angie McGuire will take over as Edmonds-Woodway’s athletic director, Stroncek said.
