Kelli

Hi there, my name is Kelli Paterson and I am an elementary education major with an edorsement in special education. I have known I wanted to be a teacher for quite some time. I think being a kid is some of the most fun and amazing times of our lives and that the love of learning at this age is inspiring! My favorite part of leading young kids is that it is actually a two way learning street, they always are teaching me new things. The creative arts have always been so intriguing to me, but what I am most excited to teach is music, dance/movement, and drama/ storytelling! These were things that I loved as a kid and made me who I am today, and I can’t wait to see that for the next generation!

I'm Lauren.  I will be a senior in the WSU Elementary Education program with a double minor in Human Development and Mathematics. I grew up on the south Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington. I have known from a young age that I wanted to become an educator-and have gravitated towards being around young children my entire life. I have been working at Sanctuary for almost a year now and am so excited to finally get into the classroom. I am passionate about learning and believe we as human beings are all life long learners. I feel so blessed to be a part of future students educational journey.
