Mrs. Ali Fried

I was born and raised in the San Mateo – Foster City school district and I have been teaching in this School District for 20 years.  I taught at North Shoreview Montessori for the first 10 years, then came to Beresford.  I absolutely love teaching at Beresford.  I have an 18  year daughter who is attending  Chapman University as a Freshman. I also have a 15  year old son who is a  Sophomore at HHS,  Both of my children are alumni of Beresford.  I have been happily married to my high school sweet heart for 23 years.  Some of my favorite past-times are scrapbooking, hiking, working out and hanging out with my kids!

Mrs. Lori Brogdon

I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO (Go Chiefs) and moved to the Bay Area over 20 years ago.Education is a second career for me and I am so blessed to be doing what I love. I taught pre-school for 12 years in Burlingame and am passionate about Early Childhood Education. I recently returned to graduate school to complete my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. This is my second year teaching Kindergarten and I am honored to be starting my career at Beresford.

I am the proud mom of two very active boys. Nickolas (16) is a Sophomore at Hillsdale High School and Matthew (12)  is a sixth grader at Bowditch Middle School.`I have been happily married to my husband, Michael, for 18 years. Our beloved German Shepherd, Kodi, keeps us active each day. Running, reading and trips to the beach are weekend favorites of mine.

Kindergarteners amaze me each and every day and I am excited to teach them all the wonders of learning. Go Bears!!!
