Welcome to Ms. Gajda's Class
Welcome to 2nd Grade! I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. :)I discovered my love for teaching while volunteering in elementary classrooms during high school. In 2004, I graduated from Western Washington University and received my teaching certificate. I completed my Professional Certification and earned my Master's Degree in Elementary Reading and Mathematics in 2009. The 2017-18 school year will be my 14th year of teaching and my 12th year here at Cedar Wood. My experience ranges from preschool through 8th grade, along with two years as the CW Reading Specialist. Teaching is an amazing profession, and I feel so blessed to spend each day with my 2nd grade friends!
When I'm not in the classroom I enjoy curling up with a good book, listening to music (especially country music!), and spending time with family and friends. My husband and I love to go hiking and spend time outdoors.
Each day at school I am greeted by a smiling group of students who are eager to participate and excited to learn. This will be a challenging year, full of many new ideas and opportunities for your children to grow. Thank you for allowing me to be one of their many guides along the way.Contact information:(425) 385-7727
