Mrs. Humeyumptewa is proud of her Latvian heritage and has fond memories of attending summer camp with other Latvian families in England. At Graland, she keeps the aftercare and enrichment programs running smoothly throughout the school year.
Favorite Interaction with Students
Seeing when something "clicks" with students, whether I’m helping out with math homework or watching them master a new game.
Most Inspiring Graland Program
The musicals - it amazes me how much the students grow from shy kindergartners to confident actors and singers.
Favorite Graland Moment
I like to greet students old and new on the first day of school.
I feel as if I am learning every day - from the students and their interactions, and from my colleagues.
In my youth I used to play in a kokle ensemble.
