As soon as you walk in the door you are greeted with a smile from the receptionist who makes me feel comfortable while waiting for my app. When I go back for my adjustment the Chiropractor greats me with a smile and hand shake. Very personable. When I'm getting adjusted they make me feel very confident and I love it I feel like its story time when I get on the table for an adjustment and it goes super quick and the appointment is over. They are very family friendly too.

We would like to Congratulate the October Educator of the Month Winner…
Matthew Johnson, of Forest View Elementary in the Everett School District.

Please Enjoy this Nomination by Liana…

I think my teacher, Mr. Johnson, should be Teacher of the Month because he really "gets" us 5th graders.

He tells us that people may think we can't do things because we're only 10, but he thinks we can do great things! Also, he allows us to work with our community.

At the moment we are building a school garden. We are using our math skills and growth mindsets to determine how to lay out the garden, how much soil and how many seeds we need, and what grows during this season.

He has even helped our class to write a grant to the Mill Creek Garden Society to help fund our gardening project!

Mr. Johnson allows us to do "Passion Projects" where we come up with an idea that we are passionate about that will help our community or spark an interest of something we love.

Not only is Mr. Johnson a really great teacher, but even better - he is really funny and puts a smile on our faces everyday. Mr. Johnson makes learning exciting and inspiring! I would love to see my 5th grade teacher, Mr. Johnson, be honored as your Educator of the Month!

Educator of the Month Jeremy Carter

2018 EOM Jeremy Carter 1 1500.jpg

Rick Merrill is Honoring Educators in Snohomish County...

Who demonstrate their care and commitment to each generation of children.   Winners are presented a plaque from Awards Service, Inc., a great big check to display, and $500 to help defray miscellaneous costs for the classroom.
 
We would like to Congratulate the September Educator of the Month Winner…
Jeremy Carter, of Totem Falls Elementary in the Snohomish School District.

Please Enjoy this Nomination…

He is the Elementary PE teacher at Totem Falls, Safety Patrol Leader and until this year a Student Council Adviser as well. He recently completed his Masters Degree last summer and is very proud of this accomplishment while working full time.

He goes out of his way to connect with his students so they 'know him' and prides himself on the fact that former students return to their elementary school to simply stop by and say "HI" to Mr. Carter.

His break or planning period generally falls during lunch time which is held in the gym aka his classroom, it is not rare that you will instead find him sitting with the special education students. He makes sure that other see him sitting there to set the example of building the relationships with ALL students and encourages other kids to join him.

He encourages kids to build each other up and to always look out for each other. When he sees a kid sitting by themselves, he makes sure to sit with them thus encouraging the other kids to maybe join and get to know the 'lone' student.

He' is going into his 7th year at Totem Falls Elementary. He has been the only male teacher staff during that time,. The relevance of that is nothing when it comes to teaching BUT when it comes to students makes him more or less the "popular" teacher.
