Welcome to Second Grade: A community of thinkers and learners!
Welcome! I am Mrs. Vaa. I look forward to learning with you this year. I hope you find this webpage helpful and beneficial in keeping updated and informed about all the interesting and fun things we learn at Brighton.
I am so excited to be teaching second grade! More Importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher! It’s going to be a fun year full of lots of learning and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to know all about you, but first I’ll tell you a few things about me.
Many people are surprised when I tell them, my first name is Kitten and I have a twin sister named Princess. (I look forward to sharing how we got such unusual names.) I went to the University of Washington where I obtained my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. I knew I wanted to teach, so I went back to school and earned a Masters in Teaching. This will be my 15th year of teaching and my fifth year at Brighton. Teaching kids to be thinkers and to love learning is my passion. I especially love science and literacy. I will do my best to make this a successful and rewarding year. I believe open communication with parents is critical to ensure the successful academic and social growth of a child.
Let our learning adventure begin! Thank you for a wonderful year of learning! Have a fun and safe summer.
