Meet The Teacher: Southside Elementary!
Ms. Whalen will be joining the staff at Southside Elementary this fall as a kindergarten teacher.
"My favorite thing about teaching is getting to build relationships with so many students. It is such a blessing to get to love on students while also inspiring them to learn new things and watching them grow.
One thing I want my new students to know about me is that I am so excited to be their teacher and we are going to have so much fun! When I am not teaching, I love to travel and I especially love visiting national parks! The two parks that are currently at the top of my list to visit are Yosemite National Park in California and Acadia National Park in Maine.
I am excited to teach at Southside because I am returning to my home district, where I was born and raised. I am also excited to work with all the wonderful students and staff at Southside!"
