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 from 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.

    ***For right now, my goal for your student is to engage in online learning in a meaningful, supported manner. I will provide engaging tasks and learning opportunists for your student each week. District-provided Student Engagement Materials are also available to reinforce and extend learning.

    During this school closure, I will be providing all learning resources and links through Google Classroom. This is where students will access content, zoom session links, and other important information. It is important that your student checks the google classroom daily.

    If you have any questions, please reach out. Email is the best way for parents to contact me. Students can contact me by leaving a comment in the weekly google classroom group chat.

    Please take care of yourselves and your families!

    Kathie Van Fleet
