    Dear Families,

               I am so thrilled to be your child’s first grade teacher! I am most excited to work alongside, you and the rest of the Emerson community, so that we can ensure your child gets the best education possible! It is my goal your child not only learns academics, but that they grow emotionally and socially in a warm, positive, safe environment. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call my direct line at (425)385-3261 or email vmanivong@everettsd.org

     My Teaching Philosophy

    I am a firm believer of student centered learning which focuses on the student’s needs, abilities, interests and learning styles with the teacher acting mainly as a facilitator. It has been proven to have many positive effects in the classroom. It promotes active learning and peer communication. It also strengthens student motivation and student-teacher relationships. More importantly, it allows the students to become responsible for their own learning. Each child is a unique individual with various backgrounds and learning styles, so I will incorporate different strategies so everyone can be successful!

     A Little About Ms. Manivong!

               I was born and raised in Everett, Washington. I am a product of the Everett Public Schools system and I am very proud to be back serving the community in which I grew up in. In 2010,I taught EFL (English as a Foreign Language) in South Korea for 4 years, and then I came back and pursued a Masters in Education at Eastern Washington University. In 2015, I taught 3rd grade in Shanghai, China, and last school year I was just down the street teaching at Horizon Elementary.

    Aside from teaching, I love spending time with my dog, Kirby and friends and family! I also love to travel, hike, and take pictures of nature!

    Yours in quality education,

    Vasana Manivong
