Welcome to first grade! I am very excited to head into our second year together at Tahoma Elementary School. What an honor and privilege it will be to teach and learn alongside with you and your child this coming year... I can’t wait for the opportunities ahead at our historical school. Our room number is 201 on the 2nd floor.

A little about me… Both my husband and I grew up in Maple Valley and graduated from Tahoma many years ago. We continue to live in this wonderful community while serving over 32 years collectively together in Tahoma schools, and Mr. Hanson has the honor of serving as the principal at Shadow Lake Elementary. We are “empty nesters” now (so hard to believe), but we were fortunate to raise our four kids here, all Tahoma grads, K-12. With them all at different stages of their college careers at various campuses throughout WA and OR, we love to take a lot of road trips to go visit them when we can!

I have been teaching in the district since 2007. I taught 4th grade last year, but I come with experience in first grade for the past eight years prior and this will be my ninth year in first! I'm so thrilled to be returning to first grade this fall! Through all of my professional and life experiences at Tahoma, I am invested in this area and will make the most of my opportunities to help the young people of our community while developing the love for learning, hard work, and excellence with your student. I am looking forward to partnering with you throughout your child’s learning journey this year and beyond. Feel free to email or contact me anytime! 

Sincerely,  Mrs. Hanson :)  

I eagerly await to see all of you at our
