Ms. Folkman

Welcome to my first grade website! This is my second year at Echo Lake Elementary, and I am so excited for the year ahead!

I am originally from Southern California, but have been living in the Pacific Northwest for nearly twenty years. Even after all this time, I am still in awe of the beautiful place that we call home! When I’m not in the classroom, I love gardening in my neighborhood p-patch garden, cooking, spending time with my family, and running.

Before I started my teaching career, I worked in public health. I love drawing on this past experience to help me do my best teaching each day. I have taught kindergarten and first grade, and I am constantly motivated and insirped by the amazing students around me.

I am looking forward to a year ahead that is filled with fun, learning and growth. I am a firm believer in the importance of teacher and family collaboration, and I’m excited to work together to make this an amazing first grade year for everyone. Please contact me at any time if you have questions, concerns, or simply to check in.
