Hi, my name is Mrs. Lani Black and I teach in Naches, WA, USA. I have been teaching for 26 years, 25 of those years in Naches. I have taught all grade levels, but 4th grade has been my favorite because fourth graders are awesome, smart, cute and sweet! My favorite subjects are math and science because I like to figure things out and I am very curious about how things work. When I was growing up, I probably drove my parents crazy asking "why?" or "how?" all the time.
I have three kids and two grandchildren all living close by. We get together as often as we can. I was born in Seattle, so my brother, sister, mom and dad live "on the west side" of the mountains in the Seattle area. I moved to Yakima when I was 23 and stayed because of the amazing spring, summer and fall weather! I finished college at Central Washington University in Ellensburg, WA and got a teaching job right away, so I was lucky!
Some of my hobbies are: photography, bicycling, hiking, traveling, camping, and genealogy. Some of my favorite foods are: anything chocolate, seafood, chocolate, good coffee, chocolate, sushi, and did I mention chocolate? Do we happen to have anything in common? Leave a comment for me if we do!
