Room 108, KR OWLS:
Hi! My name is Miss. Rockwell and I am SO excited to be part of the Kindergarten team! More
importantly, I am THRILLED to be your teacher! It’s going to be a great year full of lots of fun,
learning, and new adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us. I want to know
ALL about you, but first I’m going to tell you a few things about me.
I was born out west in Salt Lake City, Utah and moved around for most of my life. I have lived in Utah,
California, South Dakota, Georgia, South Carolina, New York, Florida, Virginia, DC, and now I live in
Bethesda Maryland! I graduated from High School in Florida, and decided to stay at the BEACH to go
to school I attended the University of North Florida… Go OSPREYS! I majored in Early Childhood
Education and couldn’t wait to graduate and start teaching.
I taught First Grade in Florida for one year before moving to DC in 2008 to teach Kindergarten here at
Janney. Having taught first grade will really help me challenge you to reach for the stars this year!
This is my 6th year teaching and last year I was again awarded the prestigious “Highly Effective” rating by
DC Public Schools. I also am pursuing my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, with a focus to be a
Literacy Specialist just like Ms. Khuu, who you will see me working with throughout the year.
Janney is a busy place with lots of new space (I love to rhyme)! I help teach our school about composting
and how to keep our school clean. After school you can find me outside running with the GIRLS ON THE
RUN club, which is for girls in 3-5th grade and coaching on the awesome Swim Team!
I am so excited to be your teacher and for you to be part of this AWESOME, all-star class we have
lined up for Room 108. This is going to be a GREAT year! Parents, follow our adventures at
