Welcome to our classroom.I grew up in Seattle, Washington, graduating from Summit High School. My teaching career began in LaCenter, Washington in 1989, after attending the University of Washington and The Evergreen State College. For the first three years, I worked at LaCenter Elementary School, teaching third and fourth grade, as well as conducting a Family Math Program. I earned my Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lesley College.In 1992, my family moved to Olympia, Washington where I took a teaching position at Olympic View Elementary. I continued to teach second, third, and fourth grade, and a multigrade 2/3 classroom. Over the years I have been a math leader at both the district and building level.In my spare time, I love to play games with my family, including my grandchildren. Reading, live theater and movies are my favorite entertainments. Favorite activities include Tai Chi and walking. Mrs. Cummings and I can often be seen walking the track at River Ridge.Olympic View is a fabulous place to teach and learn. I’m glad you are joining me in this adventure!
ASSIGNMENTS FOR SCHOOL CLOSURE
Here is today's assignments for Monday, March 16th
I know it might be difficult to complete assignments at home, but the more you can do, the more ready you will be when you return to school.
Here are today's suggestions:
1. Read for 30 minutes a choice book and write about it in your reading log.
2. Go to Readworks.org and complete the assignment and vocabulary for Astronauts. Classcode is zxfg5n. This should require your regular log in.
3. Practice your math facts, subtraction, division,or multiplication. You can do this in a game or on multiplication.com
4. Complete one practice on Mobius. I have left multiple assignments open for you.
Remember: Mobius can be found on symbaloo but has a weird log in: first initial, last name @ntps20, for example, lihrig@ntps20
5. Write at least a paragraph. There are many ideas for assignments on google classroom.
I have not figured out how to attach a link to our webpage, so look at Mr. Storedahl's (third grade) or Mrs. Boedigheimer's useful links on their webpage.
Have fun, keep learning and stay healthy!
