Welcome to third grade! My name is Jennifer DeGroot and I have enjoyed teaching for many years. Lake Stevens is a wonderful community and I have made Skyline my second home. Teaching third grade is where my heart is and I'm dedicated to growing as a professional and contributing to the success of each child in my classroom!
I received my Bachelor's degree in Interdisciplinary Arts in 2004 with a Minor in Education, and my K-8 teaching certificate in 2005 from the University of Washington, Bothell. In March 2010 I completed a Master of Education degree with an endorsement in reading also from the University of Washington, Bothell. In 2012 I received my National Board Certification.
Besides the many new academic skills we'll be working on this year, other goals for this year include learning organizational skills, working together cooperatively, and learning to appreciate the uniqueness we all bring to our classroom.
