All About Mrs. Mass
Hello! I am excited to be teaching 2nd grade at Wilkes this year! I grew up on Bainbridge Island and married my high school sweetheart from BHS. We are a northwest family and we enjoy getting out on the water or hitting the trails as much as possible with our children Isaiah (17), Jaden (14), and Taylor (9). Our high-energy boxer, Olive, often joins our adventures, too! My love of teaching and working with children has lead me to the 2nd grade classroom. I earned my degree in ECE (early childhood education) in Bellingham and enjoyed 8 amazing years of running a preschool and day program, called The Building Block, here on the island. I obtained my teaching certificate through WGU and I was fortunate enough to complete my student teaching with Mrs. Keach and Mrs. Pellegrino in the multiage program here at Wilkes. I recently earned my master's degree in mathematics education. I absolutely love 2nd grade and I am looking forward to the many learning adventures ahead!
