Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Elizabeth Whitney

Second career teacher, I have learned so much from our daughters' teachers and am grateful to teach in the district in which I live.  We are a family of Beagle-lovers who enjoy camping and spending time on a beach.  Personally, I think reading and writing from the vantage of my tent is just about the perfect form of relaxation. That said, we also have many passions and people with whom we plan our days.

Welcome to fourth grade, a transition year from primary to intermediate!  So much to discover in the months we have together...  Washington State history, books, science, math, and a love of writing!  Welcome aboard!

"Poco a poco se va lejos" means little by little one goes far... such a good word for all of us!
