Welcome to 5th grade and the 2019-2020 school year! This is my first year here at Silver Lake Elementary School and the Everett School District, but this will be my sixth year teaching. My first year I taught 5th grade in Broadview, Montana, and the last four years I taught in a 5th/6th dual grade classroom. I graduated from the University of Montana Western in the Spring 2013. Currently, I am working towards a library endorsement also from the University of Montana Western.
My husband and I just celebrated our twelve year wedding anniversary! We are the proud parents of: a pug, main coon cat, and a chihuahua. We are new to Washingtion. My husband just received a promotion with his company, and we moved to the area on July 6th from Butte, Montana. It has been an adventure so far, especially getting used to the traffic. There are so many fun opportunities and activities in this area that I am looking forward to taking part in within the upcoming year.
When I am not teaching, I have lots of different hobbies. I enjoy crocheting, reading, bike riding, and spending time with my husband, family, and friends. I also consider myself a lifelong learner, and my passion for learning is something that I look forward to sharing with my students every year. It is my goal to help them to discover what they can do through the power of education.
Here's to a successful and rewarding 2019-2020 school year!
There are no upcoming events to display.
Sorry it has been a while since the last announcement. I wanted to write and encourage you to sign up for Gradebook. Gradebook is live for elementary school this year. You can track your child's progress and see if they have any missing work. It is in your child's best interest to complete all assignments in order to grasp the new concepts being covered in class.
A great way to help your child at home is by completing iReady lessons at home. We encourage students to pass 3 math lessons and 2 reading lessons a week. If you have access to a computer, this is a great way for your child to make academic progress and build skills.
I just set up Seesaw for the class. I added all of the emails that were available through gradebook. If you did not receive an invitation, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the email address you'd like to use for an invite. Seesaw is the app the school is using to replace Class Dojo this year. It will be used to display student work and also safe and direct parent communication. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
