Welcome to Ms. Call's Class
Hi, my name is Carmen Call. This is my 24th year teaching and my fourth year teaching second grade at Whittier Elementary. Prior to Whittier, I taught overseas in South Korea and Egypt, in New Mexico, at Silver Firs and Hawthorne Elementary in Everett. I earned my Master's Degree in Education with an emphasis in Math Communication from the University of Washington. My favorite thing about this job is the diversity of students I get to share a year of learning with. Second grade is such a great year for discovery and growth.
I live in Lake Stevens with my two children, Kyra, age 17, and Trey, age 14 who keep me busy when I'm not teaching. When I'm not at school, I'm usually carting the kids to and from soccer, visiting the many beautiful places in the North Sound area, or playing with my crazy fitness hobby the hula hoop!
It's great to be a part of Whittier! I've met many wonderful families and am impressed by the fabulous children I get to work with this year. I look forward to teaching with my stellar colleagues, exploring the second grade curriculum, and soaking in the great view of the Cascade mountains from our classroom windows. It is so exciting for me to get to know a new classroom of "fishy friends" each year. I love making new friends, and seeing old friends too as kiddos progress through the grades, so don't hesitate to stop by the classroom to say hello!425-385-4331 (before/after school room 111)425-385-4300 (office, use for urgent messages)*Below is a suggested daily schedule while school is closed.
