 Teacher/Child Ratio: 1:12

 Maximum Class Size: 12

 Ages of Children: 7-12 years


Personal Background: The 2015-2016 school year will be Mandy's second year of teaching at North Wall. Mandy was teaching at Hallett Elementary in the Medical Lake School District where she has been since 2005. Prior to that she taught for 2 years in Honduras. She is certified K-8, has a minor in Spanish, and has both a reading and ESL endorsement. She is also taking courses toward her Masters in Gifted Education at Whitworth University.

Mandy is not new to our campus because she is the mother of Zae, who is in Mandy's classesat North Wall. Mandy had been wishfully thinking about making a switch from teaching at Hallett to North Wall -- and here she is. Her teaching style and philosophy blend beautifully with our school's philosophy.
