Welcome to Ms. Townsell's Class

  • Ms. Townsell Welcome to another fantastic school year!

    I am very excited to have your student in my class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth and development.
    This is my 34th year of teaching, with 32 of those years at View Ridge Elementary.  I started as one of the two youngest teachers at the View Ridge; now . . . well, let's just say I'm not the youngest teachers anymore!!!  :)  My degree is from Western Washington University, with a Master's Degree in Reading, and am a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT).  Here's an interesting tidbit . . . during my first year of teaching I taught second grade at Trafton Elementary in Arlington, a four-room school!  Yes; we rang the bell in the belfry to begin the school day! 
    Looking for access to "Daily Kindergarten Remote Learning":  Look to the right under "Quick Links".
    In the Quick Links you will find Doodling With Mo Willems at 1:00 Daily (Author of Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus).  I read many of the Mo Willems books at the beginning of the year, and the children love them!  How kind of Mo to create this daily activity for us to be together, even though we are apart!
    Check in with Mrs. Williams, our Music Specialist, and Ms. Eccleston and Mr. Wheeler, our P.E. Specialists for many activities.
