4th grade had a fun educational experience today making and enjoying homemade "winter butter". It was a fun and educational activity that allowed students to experience the life on the prairie and the characters in the novel "Little House in the Big Woods" by Laura Ingalls Wilder. It's amazing how hands- on learning experiences can make a big difference in our understanding and appreciation of literature and history. Thank you Mrs. Plucker.

This Week's Touchet Teacher Spotlight is Mrs. Debbie Ortiz! Here are some amazing facts about Mrs. Ortiz, who has been teaching at the Touchet School District for 18 Years! "I taught for 15 years in the Pasco School District. One year as a substitute, 10 years in second grade, and 4 years in fifth grade. I am a 1986 graduate of Touchet and am currently teaching 5th grade in the same classroom I was in as a 5th grader." What's your favorite part of the job? "My favorite part of teaching is the kids. I love to see them get excited about learning. It's the best feeling in the world when you see them learn something new. I love it when they are curious and ask questions." What keeps you busy at home? "I have been married to Mr. Ortiz for 32 years. We met while attending Eastern Washington University. We have three sons, Nathaniel, Jared, and Ben. Nathaniel and Jared are graduates of Touchet and Eastern Washington University. They both work in corrections. Ben attended Touchet through the 11th grade and graduated from Wa-Hi. He graduated from Whitman College last Spring and played baseball for the Blues for 5 years. He is currently working with kids at a Behavioral Service in Kennewick. I have one grandson. Nate is married to Ali, and they have our only grandchild. His name is Hudson and he just turned 3. We have 3 dogs, two of which we recently rescued. We have Ruby, Lola, and Taz. We have 5 goats and many chickens." What are your favorite hobbies? "I love reading and working on puzzles. I also loved watching my sons play baseball." What are your favorite places to visit? "My favorite places to visit are the Oregon Coast, Mexico, and Las Vegas. I would love to visit Europe. There are many places I want to see." Do you have a favorite Quote? It is a poster I have had in my room for years- "The expert in anything was once a beginner." Thank you Mrs. Ortiz for all your experience, wisdom, patience and guidance with our kids in Touchet Schools! We are lucky to have you!
