Mrs. Watrich

Hello Friends! I am Mrs. Watrich.  I have been a teacher for 30+ years and have a Master's Degree in elementary education.

Let me tell you a little about myself.  I was born and raised in Michigan. I love the beaches, the sunsets, and spending time up north in my hometown of Charlevoix with family and friends.  I am married to my wonderful husband, Mark, and we have three beautiful children. 

Elephants have been my favorite animal since I was a little girl, so my classroom has an elephant theme focusing on David McKee's character, Elmer the patchwork elephant. We will get to know Elmer and his books this year! I also love science, social studies, and art, as well as, reading, writing, and math.

I love to travel, read, explore new places
and learn new things. I look forward to a very productive, fun, and engaging year of learning with you.

See you soon!
