Greetings from Washington Elementary, where every student every day is valued, is treated with respect, presented with a high quality education, participates, tries their best, reads, thinks, writes, learns, improves their reading, writing and thinking skills, and meets educational and individual goals.
  • This is my seventh year at Washington, and my twenty-first year teaching kindergarten through sixth grade. I lived in Green River during my adolescence as my family followed my chemical engineer father all over the West, and it is a great pleasure to live here again. What an oasis of peace and sanity we have in our community. I also love the opportunities for outdoor adventures we have here. We are so blessed. My husband and I have three awesome adult sons, and we all are big readers. Reading rocks our world. It entertains us, it heals us, it teaches us, and it connects us. When we read, we can do anything. Reading truly is a super-power.
  • It is a great honor to be the Title 1 Reading Specialist, and to be able to work with these wonderful students every day.  I am always looking for ways to improve our Title 1 services and motivate our students to read. I welcome feedback, help, suggestions, and always want to know how I can better serve your child. Families of our students are also welcome to come in the Title 1 room.  Our students benefit from having adults read with them, help them with writing and projects, shelve, label, and repair books, decorate and run book fairs.
