Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgWelcome to 7th grade Language Arts. I am excited to for the learning that will be going on in our classroom and am looking forward to working with the incoming 7th graders.This will be my 16th year teaching and my fourth year teaching in this district! I previously taught 8th grade at Beaver Lake Middle School in Issaquah before I took a leave for two years to be home with my two little boys. I am thrilled to be working in the same district that my kids attend school and I am even more excited to be working at Chief Kanim!I received my Bachelor's in English at Pacific University in Oregon and was fortunate to be hired immediately after graduation in Issaquah. While teaching, I worked on my Masters in Education and Curriculum at the University of Washington and received my National Boards Teaching Certification.I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and love it here. My family and I have been in the Snoqualmie Valley for the past ten years and we love raising our boys out here.For Students: Welcome! I look forward to an amazing school year and I am eager to get started! We have a wonderful journey ahead of us. You will quickly learn our routine in the classroom and academic expectations so that we can have an awesome year together!For Parents: I will frequently post due dates on my calendar.
