TV School

Students in grades K-3 can watch daily lessons on the KTPS TV (Comcast Channel 26 or Click/Rainier Connect Channel 25).

Each 45-minute episodes, taught by two Tacoma teachers, focuses on math, literacy, and social-emotional activities by grade level. Ms. Walle teaches math K-3 and Ms. Ozolin teaches literacy K-3. Each lesson incorporates social emotional components and a short brain break between the math and literacy component.

Students can build a more personal connection to school, students without a laptop or internet access at home, by having a teacher they can watch daily. All lessons will be in alignment with what classroom teachers will be providing remotely via Schoology and sent home in packets.

Who's teaching?

Ms. Walle

Ms. Walle, Math

This year is her thirteenth as a teacher and seventh year with Tacoma Public Schools. Ms. Walle has taught from preschool through grade four. She is looking forward to being a part of students learning in new and innovative ways and connecting with families in ways we have not done so in the past. For parents she advises; be your child's cheerleader, knowing you believe in them is huge. Give them as many breaks as they need to be successful. She also wants families to know she’s on your team and here to help make this as smooth as possible. 
Ms. Ozolin

Ms. Ozolin, Literacy

Ms. Ozolin has spent all her decade-long career teaching in Tacoma, including her student teaching. She has been a kindergarten and third-grade classroom teacher and for the past three years working as a K-3 collaborative teacher. Her favorite part of teaching is the "ah-ha" moment when a student works through a struggle and sees the benefits of their perseverance. Ms. Ozolin says she is learning so much about technology and looks forward to using her new skill set to connect with students and families. And as a parent herself she advises families to give yourselves grace and when learning stops being fun, take a break.
