Amy Fairley-Kindergarten TeacherHi everyone, my name is Amy Fairley. I taught 1st grade for 17 years in the Issaquah School District. This is my first year working for the Shoreline School District. I am excited to to be teaching Kindergarten this year. I have a BA in Liberal Arts from the University of Washington and got my Masters in Teaching from City University. I have been married for 14 years and have two children named Aidan (12) and Emma (8). In my spare time I enjoy gardening, reading, and baking. This summer, my husband had a sabbatical from work so we ventured off on a 2 ½ week road trip to some National Parks and Monuments. We visited Glacier, Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore and The Badlands, to name a few.Parent EncouragementThis will be a great 1st year in school for your child filled with lots of learning and fun. I am excited to help guide your child through the wonders of school life and to help them find what they are interested in. My hope for your child at the end of the year is that they love school and are on the road in becoming life long learners.
