Meet Jamie Rees, New Language Arts Teacher

The Garfield PTSA reached out to our new teachers with a few questions – e.g. tell us about yourself and why you went into teaching, do you have any pets, what activities do you enjoy and what advice would you share?  Until we can meet in person, it’s nice to get to know our teachers in some way that we can. 

My name is Jamie Rees, I graduated from Garfield and enjoyed spells in Boston, Baltimore and Frankfurt, Germany before returning to Seattle last year. I spend most of my weekends outdoors, or at least away from my computer screen, and am looking forward to the opportunity to have a positive impact in a place of personal importance in what will be a challenging year.
