Welcome to Portable 4! My name is Molly McKague and I’m thrilled to be joining the fifth grade team here at Silver Lake Elementary. This is my 6th year teaching, 5 of which have been spent teaching 5th grade.
A little about myself...I am from the east coast, but have lived in Washington for a little over fifteen years. I am a graduate of Central Washington University where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a minor in Science Education. I have a wonderful husband, three amazing, spirited children, one spunky ferret and a rambunctious puppy. In my free time I like being with my family cooking, camping, hiking, rafting, and basically enjoying nature. I love teaching and have a passion for science.
I’m passionate about creating a learning environment where students, will grow both academically and socially. A primary goal for me this year is to ensure that students maximize their potential to achieve to high standards. During the first month of school, we will work together to develop a cooperative learning community. As 5th graders, I expect each student to take an active role in their own learning, so we will collectively establish classroom rules and norms. We will also spend the first weeks getting to know each other through a variety of community building activities. At the same time, we will jump right into the curriculum since we have a lot to cover this year across the subject areas. I will provide students with the necessary support and resources to be successful!
I am looking forward to a great year!425-385-7800
