Welcome To Full Day Kindergarten!
Thank you for enrolling your child in the All Day Kindergarten program! We are going to have a wonderful year together! Our kindergarten team has planned a year full of exciting learning opportunities for your children. Expect a year where the social, emotionally and academic growth of your children will "wow" you!
My family and I live in Lake Tapps, just minutes from Lakeland Hills. My husband and I have three children, two who attend Bonney Lake H.S. and one in the 6th grade at North Tapps Middle School. We have lived in the Auburn area since 1994. I continued my teaching career in the Auburn School District the same year.
This is my fourth year teaching full day kindergarten along side of Mrs. McKeough. I teach on Mon/Tues and Thurs/Fri. Mrs. Wright teaches every Wednesday. I have been at Lakeland Hills Elementary since the spring of 2007. My other experience includes pre-school, first grade and second grade. I earned my B.A. in Elementary Education from Northwest Nazarence University (1992) and I finished my M.S. degree in Elementary Reading and Literacy from Walden University in 2009.
I am excited for another great year in full day, watching the amazing growth of each child. Thank you for the opportunity to serve your child this year, I look forward to partnering with you in your child's education!
