Welcome

  • Gray Welcome to another fantastic year! 

     I am so eager to meet each of my new friends and begin our first-grade year together on September 9th.  This will be my 3rd year of teaching and my 3rd year teaching at Jackson Elementary. I am so excited to jump into this year of learning with all of you.  Teaching beginning reading and writing is a passion of mine. I love the Everett area and have lived here my whole life. My husband grew up in everett as well! You will soon meet two very rambunctious members of our family, Kota and Vito. They are our dogs that love to swim out to retrieve a ball, snuggle up beside me and get into mischief around the Gray household. 

    I am very excited to have your child in my class this year and am looking forward to a year full of learning, growth, and development.
    This year is going to be filled with fun and lots of learning! I just want to share that this is an unusual way to begin our year together, but with patience and grace we can help each other through it.  I am learning along with you on how to develop an appropriate, engaging and effective learning plan for your child. This year we will be using canvas for our learning classroom, this link is below, to access our learning page, please click the canvas button. If you have questions or concerns, I ask that you reach out directly to me so that I can support you in a timely manner. I will respond to email (ddurand@everettsd.org) within 24 hours. Please let me know if you would prefer a meeting via Zoom or by telephone rather than email. I am happy to accommodate and want to support you and your little one through this. Ready, set...Go!😊
