Dear Families,Welcome to the 2020/2021 school year. I am pretty sure this is not how any of us envisioned or hoped the year would be starting. It has been a crazy ride the last 6 months and I am not sure when exactly we will be able to exit. However, I am determined to make the best of this year and our time together. At THE 5th grade runs a modified middle school model. This means that I will be teaching math to all 5th graders. I have the pleasure of working with Mr. Nunlist who will be taking on all ELA and social studies and Mrs. Fisher who teaches all of the science curriculum.We will be using Google Classroom as our learning platform and Zoom for any video meetings. There is a link below to the Google Classroom. In order to access it, your student will need to be logged into his or her chrome account from your personal device or simply log in from their school issued Chromebook. From this link they will have access to all 3 Google Classrooms (Mrs. Fisher and Mr. Nunlist's).Check out my welcome video below and/or my bio. I am very excited for this school year and to meet all of you.Mrs. Brannin
This is my 15th year of teaching and I absolutely believe it is the BEST job ever. Making connections with students and families, seeing the lightbulb go off when the concept finally clicks, having fun, and being able to continually learn are just a few of the reasons I love it.
I spent the first 8 years of my teaching career in the Centralia School District teaching 5 and 6th graders before I was hired here at Tumwater Hill Elementary. I have taught 5th grade each year I have been here. This is the third year that the 5th grade team has done the modified middle school model and I've had the incredible experience of just teaching math to all of the 5th grade students at The Hill.
I am married to my best friend and we have 2 children (a 5th grader and a 3rd grader) who both also attend THE. We also have 2 dogs (Thor and Loki) and a cat named Cheezit.
Some of my favorite things to do include camping, learning about history, taking walks, jumping on the trampoline, watching the Seahawks, spending time with my family and I am a sucker for the sunrise and sunset!
I cannot wait to get to know all of you and to learn about your interests as well.Email - email@example.comPhone - 360-709-7300
