Recent CWU graduate Laurel Hasten started her first day of school as a new third-grade teacher in Everett on Wednesday.
"I was pretty nervous about it. It’s been such a fun day. The nerves went away and it's just been an exciting day," Hasten told the Herald of Everett.
By Wednesday afternoon, she had already memorized the names of her 26 students.
Hasten attended CWU at the Edmonds Community College campus in Lynnwood. She graduated in June and was offered a job at Challenger Elementary School in Everett a few weeks later.
