Welcome to Ms. Van Fleet's Class

  • Katherine Gilbert Welcome to another fantastic year!

    Welcome to the Third grade at Silver Lake Elementary! I want to introduce myself to you. My name is Kathie Van Fleet. I have a degree in Education for City University of Seattle and a Master’s in Literacy from Central Washington University. My interests include spending time with my family, reading, playing board games, my cats, my dog, Sully, traveling, and I really like Disney. I am happy to say this is my 10th year here at Silver Lake. I have previously taught at another school in Everett and a private school in Longview Washington my hometown.

              I expect this to be a great year for your student: a year of learning and growing. My goal is to provide a firm foundation in basic skills that are relevant, rigorous, engaging as well as personalized. To make this happen I want to make an effort now to develop a positive relationship with you. All of us, teacher, parents and student, will need to work together, respect one another, cooperate, assume responsibilities, and strive to communicate well. To support you with this you may email me kvanfleet@everettsd.org or message me on Seesaw. If you need to talk, my number is 425-385-6928 (voice message only) but please only before or after school.

    It is my goal to help your child achieve their personal best. These next few weeks are a time when we focus on class rules, procedures, and expected behaviors to support our work together. Children will succeed when expectations are clear. Please join me in supporting your child in their good choice making, as they invest lots of effort and energy in becoming the best Third grade learners possible.
