Meet the Teacher

  • Hello Lowrie community!

    My name is Mrs Ikeda, pronounced approximately “ee-KAY-dah,” and this will be my second year at Lowrie. I came to WLWV from the Beaverton SD and before that I taught college courses at the State University of New York at Buffalo. My family and I moved to Lake Oswego from the Buffalo area 6 years ago and we absolutely love it here. I enjoy spending time exploring Oregon with my family and doing my hobbies like painting, crocheting, and photography. I also rarely turn down the opportunity to play volleyball or dance. Oh, and I like to wear fun socks, they make me smile.

    Something you should know about me is that by far my favorite activity is reading. I carry books with me everywhere. I love to tell everyone about good books I’ve read, and to hear about their favorites too. Some of my  newest favorites: The Last Apprentice - Revenge of the Witch, which turned out to be way creepier than expected but very, very good. It's ok for 5th graders if you don't mind creepy. The New Kid - great graphic novel that won the Newberry award!!! And the Winterhouse trilogy, a series of slightly supernatural mysteries in a hotel setting. 

    What about you? What are some of your favorites? I’d love to add your favorites to my list of “books to read.”
