The summer has flown by! I look forward to an amazing school year as we build a classroom community rooted in faith and learning. This summer my family took a long road trip to visit five National Parks, including Grand Canyon, Joshua Tree, Zion, and Bryce Canyon to name a few. Hiking, surfing, and relaxing under the stars were highlights of my summer.
I have two children at St. John- Mason (8th grade) and Rowan (5th grade). I have taught kindergarten, third grade, fifth grade, and special education. Sixteen of my twenty years experience are at St. John School. Obviously, I love this school and it is my second home.
I have a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Gifted Education from Seattle University and a BA from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education.
We are so fortunate to have Mrs. Maria Arruela on our team. She will be teaching our class every Friday, which will free me up to tend to the needs of other students at our school. Students will love her!
Fourth grade is a year of academic exploration and social growth. All students become more self sufficient, mindful and responsible. Students embrace success and learn from challenges. It is a year of adventure and for some personal transformation!
I look forward to the first day of school- Wednesday, September 5! Remember dismissal is at noon.
Mark your calendars for the Back to School BBQ on Friday, September 7 at 5:30pm (I’ll be flipping burgers with Chef Michael) and Curriculum Night on Thursday, September 13 at 7pm.
