Welcome to first grade! I am very excited to have another excellent 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 34 years collectively together in Tahoma schools, and Mr. Hanson has the honor of serving as the principal at Shadow Lake Elementary. Our children are all grown, but we were fortunate to raise our four kids here, all Tahoma grads, K-12.

I have been teaching in the district since 2007, and this will be my tenth year teaching first grade! 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 :)
