Inspiring greatness in every child, every day!Lisa HollandPond 20 at Mt. PilchuckWelcome to third grade! Third grade promises to be an exciting year of transitions! Third grade is the beginning of a journey from primary to intermediate learning...a year of growth and change. We will spend a great deal of time this year learning new skills. The journey goes from addition to multiplication, from printing to cursive and from picture books to chapter books. Students work hard to become independent thinkers and learners. We will experience these transitions together in a challenging and supportive classroom! We are excited to learn together in Pond 20!I LOVE teaching! It is not just what I do...it is who I am! I am thankful for the opportunity to embark on this learning adventure with your third grader this year!I have been teaching since 1994. This is my sixth year at Mt. Pilchuck. Prior to that, I was teaching in Granite Falls. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, and am glad to be teaching in Lake Stevens!
