Carolyn Upshur

Here is a little something about myself. I received my Masters in Teaching from City University. This will be my second year teaching 1st grade at Oakbrook. Prior to that I worked for Soar Academy a charter school teaching Kindergarten Humanities. I spent several years substituting for Tacoma School District, University Place, and Cloverpark. I also taught at several private schools. As an educator I strongly believe in working with my parents to learn all I can about their children. I will do everything to ensure that your child reach his/her full potential.
