Dear Students and Families,

Hello, and welcome to third grade at Lowrie Primary School! I’m eager to get to know each of you very soon. Here is a little information about me, so that you can get to know me a little better.

My name is Mrs. Ka’ae (pronounced “kuh-eye”).  I grew up in southern Oregon, in the town of Central Point. After graduating from High School, I moved to Eugene to go to the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!), where I studied Educational Foundations as an undergraduate student. I also attended the University of Oregon for my master’s degree, where I received my teaching license. I am going into my fourth year teaching. Last year I taught at Stafford Primary School, and before that I taught in Central Point.

I moved to the Portland area last year, where I live with my husband, Bronz, my Chihuahua, Bella, and Miniature Pinscher, Piper.  I enjoy the outdoors, going rafting, hiking, boating, and playing volleyball. I am excited and proud to be joining the Lowrie Primary community this school year.

Here are some upcoming Lowrie Primary events:

*August 27 – School Supply Drop-off/Meet and Greet – 2:30 to 3:30 pm
