After living in Whitewater for 10 of the last 12 years, I am extremely excited to return to the place where I first started teaching. Washington Elementary has always been a special place to me, as not only did I student teach here, but I taught my first year right in this very school. After 6 years of teaching 4th grade in Palmyra, I am really looking forward to a great year teaching 3rd grade back here at Washington. The wonderful staff and kids we have in this school and district are truly something special. This district looks to foster a comfortable and innovative learning environment, and I am thrilled to be a part of such a smart and innovative team.
