Welcome to Mr. Watson's Kindergarten Class 142!

My name is William Watson and I’m so happy to be your child’s kindergarten teacher this year in room 142! I’m looking forward to getting to know each of my students as we learn something new everyday. We will have a lot of fun this year! I love my job as a teacher and I know YOUR CHILD is going to LOVE school!

I was born and raised in Minneapolis, just a few minutes away from Burroughs. When I’m not at school, I spend most of my biking and playing or watching sports. I play on a baseball team in the summer called the River Rats, a basketball team, and a hockey team throughout the year. Also, I love to restore old bicycles and ride them all over the lovely trails we have in the Twin Cities.

I earned both my Bachelor of Science and Master of Education degrees in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. I have experience in many Minneapolis Schools, and have taught at Dowling and Burroughs. This will be my second year teaching Kindergarten at Burroughs. I love teaching at Burroughs and I especially love teaching kindergarteners in room 142!
