Welcome to Mrs. Birse's classroom website





    Welcome to another fantastic year at Gateway Middle School! 

    I graduated from Western Washington University and my undergrad degree was in English Literature with a focus in Social and Liberal Studies. I then spent a year in Thailand teaching English to elementary school-aged children in Chiang Mai. This inspired my love of teaching and learning; I was motivated to go for my Master's degree and become a teacher here in my home state. I went back to Western (Go Vikings!) and got my Master in Teaching degree.

    I am very excited to have your student in my class this year, and I am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development. 


    Feel free to email me any questions or concerns you might have. I get back to you as soon as I can during the weekdays and I try not to check my email on the weekend.
