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 :)

    Covid-19 update: This website is changing regularly to help provide student engagement and learning enhancement opportunities. Please check out the websites linked as well as the documents, videos and activities loaded onto the Google Classroom page. I do believe that we can work together to support student learning during this emergency closure - and will work with you to help make that happen. If you need any assistance - I am available via email at aweitkamp@everettsd.org (and will respond within 24 hours, except during Spring Break).


    We miss the students very much and hope to see them again soon!
