After a quiet summer at home Tim is ready to come back to the classroom! He is excited to share his tank makeover with the students.
We always say that we work in the most beautiful place and it’s confirmed every morning when I drive into town. I don’t think anyone could ask for a better view from their classroom windows!
I am excited to start my 18th year teaching at Index Elementary! I graduated from Central Washington University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and an additional endorsement in reading. I have since received a Master’s Degree in Education, with a focus on reading and literacy. I came to work in Index in January of 2006, teaching preschool, kindergarten, and first grade. With more recent changes I am now teaching Kindergarten through Third Grade.
