Hello My Name Is...

Ms Manning

Ms. Manning

     I am starting my third year here at Gordon Elementary. I have taught 5th grade in 2016-2017 and will begin a second stint as a 4th/5th split teacher. This will be my 20th year as a full time teacher. I worked in Port Townsend for many years before moving “across the bridge.” I knew I wanted to be a teacher in fourth grade so now I am living the dream.

     I have a daughter who is a teacher in Gig Harbor and a grandson who will start first grade in the fall of 2017. We love to travel and have been to  Oregon, Florida, California, and Mexico together. I even went to Japan as a Fulbright Scholar with 200 other teachers for 3 weeks and survived a hurricane in Costa Rica this past year. We always have an exciting time traveling and learning. We will have some exciting times in the classroom as well!
