About Mrs. Backholm

My name is Hailey Backholm and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Pathfinder Kindergarten Center. I am so excited to have your child in my class this year! I graduated from Western Washington University with my BA in elementary education with endorsements in teaching Reading and ELL. 

In my spare time, I love to travel and spend time with my husband Warren. I also love the beach, animals, and reading.

  • Pete the Cat

    by James Dean Year Published:

    Pete the Cat goes walking down the street wearing his brand-new white shoes. Along the way, his shoes change from white to red to blue to brown to WET as he steps in piles of strawberries, blueberries, and other big messes!

    But no matter what color his shoes are, Pete keeps movin' and groovin' and singing his song...because it's all good. Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes asks the reader questions about the colors of different foods and objects—kids love to interact with the story.

    The fun never stops—download the free groovin’ song.

  • Bob Books

    by Bobby Lynn Maslen Year Published:

    Teach a child letter sounds with Bob Books Set 1! With four letters in the first story, children can read a whole book. Consistent new sounds are added gradually, until young readers have read books with all letters of the alphabet (except Q). Short vowels and three-letter words in simple sentences make Bob Books Set 1 a fun confidence builder. With little books, come big success.
