Meet Ms. Mullen!
Welcome Kindergarteners and Families!
I am so happy to meet you and am looking forward to an amazing year together! This is my 10th year of teaching-can you believe it?? My most favorite grade to teach is...you guessed it...KINDERGARTEN! We will get to do so many fun and exciting things together this year-we'll read lots of interesting books, write stories, draw, play together, and count-sky's the limit with us!
When I was in kindergarten (a long time ago), I lived far away in a country called Okinawa. I had my own backpack, crayons, and had a special water bottle that was red and black. When I was older, I went to college at WSU (go Cougs!), and later went to graduate school at Seattle University (go Hawks!). I have 4 big kids of my own, a dog named Buddy and two wild little cats named Kirby and Pippen. I live here on Mercer Island right by Ellis Pond.
My wish for you this special year is that you LOVE school as much as I do (maybe even more!). Island Park is a place of discovery and a place people love to be! It makes me so happy when I wake up in the morning and know that I will get to teach along with my friends, Ms. D and Ms. J and that we will get to spend time with all of you kindergarteners!
I am looking forward to getting to meet all of you and see your shining happy faces next week!
