Hello! My name is Cathy Mish, and I am a LAP teacher at Endeavour Elementary. This is my 14th year teaching in the Mukilteo School District. Before I became a LAP teacher, I was a 5th grade and 3rd grade teacher. It has been incredible to work in this district because of the caring community, collaborative staffs and district leaders constantly bringing us the best professional development opportunities. I actually grew up in Mukilteo and went to Serene Lake Elementary, Olympic View Middle School, Mariner and Kamiak High Schools! I graduated from the University of Washington in 1999 with a BA in International Studies. I also minored in Russian, and have gotten to use the language with some students and their families. In 2003, I obtained my teaching certificate from the University of Washington, Bothell. And now I’m working on earning an MS in Reading! My husband’s name is Ben, and we have two sons, Andrew and Max.
