Ms. W

Upper English Teacher

My name is Casey Whitlatch (also known as Ms. W) and I am so excited to join the Northwest Chinese Academy as an English Language Arts and Social Studies teacher for 3rd-5th grade. Since I am joining you in the middle of the school year, I thought I’d take a moment to introduce myself.

I am currently finishing my Master of Arts in Teaching through Western Governors University. I will graduate with a K-8 teaching license in February. Before entering my MAT program, I received my TEFL certification in the Czech Republic and spent several years teaching English as a Foreign Language to students of all ages in South Korea, China and Saudi Arabia. I’ve been back in Portland for a year now. I spend my free time reading, hiking, seeing movies with my husband and playing with my pets.

I am so lucky to be joining your community. I know NWCA is a wonderful school and I can’t wait to be a part of the wonderful education your child is receiving.
