My name is Shelley Crossen, and I will be the ECI Literacy specialist at Saltar's Point this year.
I have been teaching here in the state of Washington for 30 years. Most of my career has been spent teaching 4th and 5th grade...my favorites! I taught in Federal Way for most of my career at both elementary and middle school. So I have seen what 4th and 5th graders need to be prepared for, and I am focused on helping students and families feel ready for the transition. Prior to moving to Saltar's Point Elementary, I spent five years teaching in a 3rd-5th grade class on Anderson Island. It was a wonderful introduction to Steilacoom.
When I am not teaching, I spend time with my husband, my son, and my extended family in eastern Wa. I also enjoy traveling anywhere sunny and HOT, being on the water, reading, and working in my yard.
I look forward to getting to know you and your children this year.
