National Board Certified Teacher
IMSE Orton Gillingham TrainedHi, my name is Amy Coleman. I live on our gorgeous island with my husband Jim, and two dogs-Coco and Pumpkin. Our children graduated from Oak Harbor High School in 2012 and 2015. I am also blessed as my grandsons (I have 2 of them) were able to attend OVE for a short time!! This is my second HOME.I have been teaching for over 20 years, and this is my 17th year right here at Olympic View Elementary! I have taught 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. For the last several years, I have been so lucky... Let me tell you why-I get to teach reading to students all the time! The best thing about my job is that I get to teach and learn with so many students, and I get to meet and see all of our Orcas! What I love the most about teaching is seeing all students learn and grow in so many ways. I love the relationships I get to develop, and my FAVORITE thing is when my prior students come back to visit, email, or call and tell me things they remember from our time together.I look forward to this amazing school year!Instilling confidence and a love of learning in all students.
