Briney Alltucker

    2nd grade
    ​I've been lucky enough to have my whole teaching career within the walls of Whittier!  I student taught at this wonderful school in 2005 and was happy to continue here teaching 3rd grade, Kindergarten, ELD, and literacy intervention over the years.  I have a BA in English and Creative Poetry from Colby College, a MA in Elementary Ed for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations from CU Boulder along with my ESL endorsement, and have received National Board Teacher Certification. I am thrilled to be a part of the second grade team and so excited to see what this year brings.
    I enjoy yoga, hiking, skiing, rowing, running, painting and writing poetry. Most of all I love spending time with my son...playing outside, resting at home, or going on adventures. Strengths of mine include finding the wonderful uniqueness in each child, fostering an inclusive and positive learning environment where students can thrive and feel celebrated, and making learning fun!
