Gifted and Talented Education



Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Michael Armstrong

Moving to Ray E. Kilmer is an exciting change for me; one that I feel I’ve been preparing for my whole life. I’ve taught many students of different ages and abilities, 4th through 9th grade, over 23 years in Oregon, California, and Colorado. My strengths have always been in math and reading and I love to help students set goals, learn to love learning, and become active and engaged in their education and their futures. 

I earned my BS in Elementary Education from Walla Walla University in 1998 with high school endorsed minors in math and English, and I recently completed a M.A. in Administration and Leadership from La Sierra University. I love working with people—students, parents, and teachers—and am excited to be joining the team at RKES.

My wife and I love to get out and hike, dog-sit for our daughter, and help out wherever we are needed. 

If your child is in my classroom, please understand that I plan to help them show up, level up, lean in, and fail forward. 

Looking forward to  meeting you, 

Michael Armstrong
