• Lillian Ortiz-Self Hello, Rhino families, My name is Ms. Ortiz-Self (most students call me Ms. Ortiz) Although, I have been in the Everett School District for many years, this is my fourth year at Jefferson Elementary.
    I  graduated from Drake University with a Masters degree in Public Administration and a second Masters degree in Counseling. I have worked across child serving systems on behalf of children and families, and am passionate about making sure that all children reach their highest potential. 
    I look forward to working with you and your child to maximize your students academic success. I know these are unprecedented times. Virtual classrooms are a unique challenge gratefully, our children are resilient and together we will get through this. Virtual or in person we are all part of the Jefferson family. We may have to do things differently for a while but we are RHINO STRONG!
