    Hello! 
    I am thrilled to begin teaching at NWMS. For the past two years I have been teaching in South Korea, and I am happy to be back in my home state of Washington. I love teaching, writing, and sharing my passion for literature. My goal is to share my joy of English with your children, along with providing a safe environment where they can grow as learners, have fun, and enjoy education. Parents, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.

    This course will target students’ growth in the areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, discussion, reflection, and viewing. Reading strategies, critical thinking skills, and vocabulary building comprise the main elements of reading instructions. Through fiction, nonfiction, and poetry reading, students will practice reading strategies and comprehension skills. The focus of writing will be on narrative, informational, and argumentative. The overall goal of the class is to increase the literacy and writing ability of students. To learn more, please view the syllabus link. I look forward to meeting you soon!

    Sincerely,

    Kirsten Dresker
