Teacher Appreciation Week


The PTA made the teachers feel extra special each day.  On Monday, teachers were greeted with decorated classroom doors.  So creative!  Breakfast was served on Tuesday.  Wednesday was dedicated to students giving notes and gifts to their teachers.  A gift was given on Thursday, and on Friday, teachers were served lunch.  We appreciate the support from the PTA!  We know it’s hard work and they provide so many activities throughout the year for teachers and students.  Thank you so much!  We are lucky to have such a wonderful PTA!  (Not all doors are pictured, but they were all fantastic!)

Ms. Dekker - 2nd Grade Teacher


This is my fifteenth year teaching. I have been at Rees since the new school was built.  I have taught first through third grades and second grade is my favorite.  I am the oldest of 8 kids and grew up in Anaheim, California.  I love being an aunt and spoiling my niece and nephews.  I love to dance, take pictures, watch movings, look at the sky, bake cookies, and laugh with my family.


I like burgundy, but I don’t like tan.

I like pizza, but I don’t like lima beans.
