April Weitkamp Welcome to the Life Skills class at Jefferson Elementary!  We are delighted to have you and your child join us.  Our classroom is a unique and dynamic place with a lot going on each and every day.  We are very excited to have your student in our class this year and are  looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development.  Jefferson is a warm and welcoming place with a wonderful staff and we are glad you are here with us.
    I have been teaching in a self-contained special education setting since 1998, and have been with the Everett school district since 2004.  I received my BA in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Special Education from Washington State University in 1997, and spent the next few years working for the Kent School District.  I received my MA in Educational Counseling from Seattle Pacific University prior to coming to Everett.  
    I enjoy reading, taking walks and spending time with my family, including my son Lukas and daughter Olivia.

    If you wish to reach me, I am available via email at aweitkamp@everettsd.org and via phone at 425.385.7434.  Please allow me 24 hours to respond.
    Thank you,
    April Weitkamp :) 
    March 29, 2021-       Welcome Spring!
    As we enter into conference week, please remember that this is a collaborative time for us to discuss not only how your child is doing, but also what is and is not working. We are here to work with you during virtual learning. If you need additional time, drop-ins, more specifics related to assignments or communication, please let me know. 
    Conference link is now on the Canvas Zoom page. We look forward to seeing you then.
    There will be one more pick-up/drop off of materials for the Friday prior to Spring Break. 
    We are here for you to help in any way we can, aweitkamp@everettsd.org or call/text 425-298-6880, or use the Remind app to reach Mrs. Weitkamp.
