Grades K-12Nina Gartland Special Services
I previously taught in the Northshore School District, near Seattle, for almost 20 years. I have had the opportunity to teach both general and special education students, and know that I love working with all students. My role, as a teacher, is to help kids grow. This may be academically, socially, or helping students learn positive social behaviors that help with school relationships. The main goal, for me, is to always help kids on their journey towards being life-long learners who are proud of doing their best. I enjoy being part of a school team that shares the honor of educating children.
On my personal time, I enjoy walking, reading, architecture, travel, and spending time with my family. Although we have been a part of Lopez for 20 years as part timers, I am looking forward to being part of the Lopez community full time. It's an honor to be here!
