At Dragon’s Den School Age Program we believe that children learn best when they are loved, respected, and appreciated. If children are short-changed in self-esteem, we know their development will suffer. Therefore, at the heart of our program is a philosophy that respects the dignity, worth, and uniqueness of each child, staff, and family member. We appreciate childhood as a unique and valuable stage of the human life cycle, and provide a safe environment for children socially, emotionally, and physically.

My name is Vanni Manuel-Salvador. I was born and raised on the island of Luzon, in the Philippines. I migrated to the US in September of 2007. My first job in the US was at Little Eagles Child Development Center. I have worked with children ages infant through Pre K as a lead/co lead teacher for 9 years. I graduated at Saint Louis University, Baguio City, Philippines with a Bachelor of Elementary Education and finished academic units required for the Degree of Masters of Arts in Guidance and Counseling. I taught in the Philippines for 13 years, both in Preschools and Elementary, before migrating to US. I am married to my wonderful husband and we have been blessed with 2 beautiful daughters Maxine and Zoey. We enjoy going to the beach and have picnics at the park, watch movies, and swimming! I love being with children and enjoy watching them grow, develop, and learn. I believe in providing a warm, fun, and loving atmosphere for all children. There is no greater pleasure than helping a child build their self confidence, social skills, and love of learning.
My name is Dan Cotherman and I’m excited to be serving the needs of the Dragon’s Den students. I grew up in Florida and studied Psychology and Biology in college before making the big move out to Seattle to focus on becoming a more impactful educator a few years ago. I hope to bring my experience with social emotional learning and self-expression to the students so they may develop confidence in their abilities, healthy friendships, and thoughtful decision-making strategies. It’s an honor to work with such bright and diverse students and I’m excited to see the children and staff grow together!
My name is Marquise Green. I have recently become involved with Dragon's Den and am very excited to be here! I moved to Seattle from Richland, Washington in search of a bigger avenue to pursue musical goals and am ecstatic to be working with these wonderful children. I was born in Richland, Washington and graduated from Hanford High School. I spent 3 years going to Tacoma Community College, where I studied arts and sciences, and also where I worked as a supplemental instructor for English as well as a sound engineering proctor. I graduated with my Associates in June of 2016. I believe music is the universal influence and look forward to bringing my music knowledge to Dragon's Den. Music is an art and a form of expression no different from painting or creating crafts and is not explored enough at the elementary age. I'm excited to bring these learning opportunities to Dragon's Den and look forward to seeing you!
