Welcome to Mr. Watson's Kindergarten Class 145!

My name is William Watson and I’m so happy to be your child’s kindergarten teacher this year in room 145! 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 have lived in Minnapolis my whole life and was born and raised just a few minutes away from Burroughs. When I’m not at school, I spend most of my biking, reading, and playing or watching sports. I play on a baseball team with my brother 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. Before coming to Burroughs, I taught 3rd grade at Dowling in Minneapolis. This will be my 4th year teaching Kindergarten at Burroughs. I love teaching at Burroughs and I especially love teaching kindergarteners in room 145!
