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.
