My name is Ms. Colby, and I am very excited about teaching another year here at Washington Elementary School! I am thrilled to be your teacher this year and I am looking forward to a year of learning, fun and adventures! I can't wait to learn all about you, but first I'll tell you a little about me!
I was born in Lakenheath, England...... thas right ENGLAND! I lived there for about three years before moving to California. and eventually Seattle. I played a year of college basketball at Highline College up in Seattle before joining the Air Force! I was in the Air Force for about 5 years and got to travel all over the United States! After the Air Froce, I stayed at home for a while to take care of my kids (JD and Colby). Then I went back to school to become a TEACHER!!!! I graduated from the University of Central Oklahoma and taught there for 6 years before moving up here to Connecticut. I have been here for three years now and am starting my fourth year as a teacher at Washington ES!!
There is so much that I am lookking forward to this year! Some of the topics we get to study are elements, properties of matter, outerspace and clouds! In math we are going to work in teams to figure out different ways to solve the same problem..... you are going to be a math detective! Mrs. Brito will be doing some pretty exciting things with you in reading and writing too! It's going to be a great year!!
I cant wait to see you!!!
