Hello Orting Families,
My name is Christine Wombwell and I teach 2nd grade at Orting Primary School. I have lived here in Orting for 9 years. I have three children, 2 who attend our Orting Schools. My daughter Alexis is 12 and attends Orting Middle School, My son Cameron is 10 and attends Ptarmigan Ridge. Our family has just welcomed our third child, a new baby girl named Aidah. As a family we enjoy spending time with each other. We love to hike, camp, and watch movies together. Aside from spending time with my family, I love teaching. I earned my Bacholors degree in Elementry Education in 2017 and my achieved a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction in 2019. Teaching is my passion and I am dedicated to do what it takes for the kids in Orting!
Why do I teach?
I teach so that I can give children a safe environment where they can explore, learn, and grow. Where each child is respected for who they are, encouraged to try- even if you make mistakes along the way, and pushed to achieve more. I love to see the joy in their little faces when they finally achieve something they have been struggling with.
In order for ALL children to feel safe in their environment we have to have solid classroom expectations. In our classroom we MUST follow the 3 B's- Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible. We are each responsible for following the classroom expectations and making sure we are safe, respectful, and responsible so that ALL students are able to give their best effort in learning. My expectations for ALL students are firm, fair, and constant.
My preferred way to communicate with families is through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our classroom uses Bloomz for daily communication.. If you're a parent or guardian for a student in my class, in Bloomz, you will get real time updates and reminders. Be sure to connect with our class on Bloomz through the link and class code below. .
