Biographical Information

Edie Reclusado teaches a third and fourth grade multi-age classroom at Crystal Springs Elementary School in Bothell. One of the programs Mrs. Reclusado has developed with her students includes the construction and management of Reclusadoville, a student-designed replica of Bothell. The program addresses such areas as urban design, architecture, city planning, civic institutions and the workings of the community. Reclusadoville was honored at a Bothell City Council meeting as an official "sister city." Mrs. Reclusado's use of student portfolios as an assessment tool in parent-student-teacher conferences gives her students the opportunity to discuss their individual strengths and weaknesses. Like many of her other initiatives, this program also fosters a strong bond between parents and the classroom.
