Please email at any time and I will reply within 48 hours, but usually sooner. You may call the school from 8:15 am to 3:45 pm. The office will transfer you to my room. If I am not teaching, I will answer. If I am teaching,  it will go to voicemail. I will check voicemail at the end of each day. EMAIL is the best way to contact me. 

 

Welcome Message

Welcome to kindergarten. I am Miss Bounds and will be your child's teacher this year. This is my 6th year at Featherstone Elementary and my 5th year teaching kindergarten. I previously taught kindergarten in Washington State and in Southern Virginia. In 2006 I received my Master in Education from Nazareth College of Rochester in New York State. Teaching has always been my passion and Kindergarten is my favorite grade to teach.
