    Mrs. Morris  
    I am in my thirteeth year teaching on Bainbridge Island. 
    I am originally from South Dakota.   I went to  school in Minnesota; Concordia College, Moorhead, Concordia University, St. Paul. and St. Mary's  University for my graduate degree.   I worked in early childhood education in the Minneapolis area. I left Minneapolis a few years to teach in other countries. I taught preschool in Lahore, Pakistan for one year and was a Peace Corps volunteer in Namibia, Africa for two years. I worked with teachers in Namibia.  
    I have lived on the island for fourteen years.   My husband is an islander.  We enjoy boating, kayaking, walking on the beach, and watching 80's movies.   
     I have spent time this summer learning about the latest reading research and looking into best practices for our elemenary emerging readers.   
    I will working with a variety of students at Blakely, Ordway, and other schools in the district.     I have a son named Elliot and a  4 year old cat named Bali.
