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 :)
