Welcome to Kindergarten!
My name is Laryssa Kann and I am thrilled to be teaching Kindergarten this year! I spent three years teaching for the East Valley and Spokane Public School districts as well as three years homeschooling my own children. I decided to take a break from teaching when I started my family. All four of our kids now attend Freeman Elementary, Josiah (6th), Adeleigh (5th), Ahava (2nd), and Evelyn (2nd). I love being able to teach at the same school my kids attend. My husband and I moved our growing family out to Freeman eight years ago and it has easily been one of our best decisions. We love our Freeman Family!
I graduated from East Valley High School and attended Whitworth College (Yes, college. It wasn't a university yet.). There, I earned my BA in Elementary Education with endorsements in Math and Reading and a Minor in Special Education. Teaching is a life passion of mine and my happy place. I believe every child is capable of learning and it is my job to provide unique opportunities to foster that learning in a meaningful way specific to each individual.
I look forward to partnering with you this year as we walk through this Kindergarten year with your child. I ask that you help me support your child in whatever way is needed so that he or she can reach their full potential this year. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns.
