Mrs. Plunkett

I have been teaching since August of 2004 and love what I do each and every day! I am lucky to have taught at both the high school level and elementary level; First grade has been my home for many years and now I have transitioned into teaching ELL at the Washington School and am excited to begin! I am happily married and Mom to Grant (April 2014) and Vivian (June 2017). We share our home with our fish, Flash. Some of my hobbies include: bike riding, reading, and spending time with my friends and extended family. I was chosen by the staff at the Washingoton School as the 2017 Teacher of the Year.

Ms. Driscoll

Hi Wolfpack! I have been teaching in the Lowell Public Schools since 2014. I have held many roles and have experience teaching grades K-8! An elementary classroom teacher at heart, I began my first few years in the classroom as a 2nd and 4th grade teacher. After spending time in the classroom, I had the opportunity to serve as a K-8 STEM Coach modeling lessons, creating curriculum, and supporting staff and students with all things STEM. After working with out Newcomer classrooms and seeing how STEM helped develop their English language skills, I was excited to become an ELL teacher, and look forward to working with Washington students! I am a life-long learner and am continuously taking classes, but when I'm not learning or teaching, I enjoy running, kayaking, biking, hiking, and being outside with my two rescue pups, Buddy and Sadie. 

Ms. Driscoll teaches the English Language Learners in grades 3 and 4.
