    Mrs. Elizabeth Yendes

    Fabulous 5th Grade


    To teach is to touch a life forever!

       My name is Elizabeth Yendes, and I am pleased to take this opportunity to meet you. I have been a teacher in the CNUSD for 22 years, teaching grades 4, 5 and 6. I live in Murrieta, California with my husband and three children. My oldest daughter is a  graduate from UCSD, and is a school psychologist. She is 26.  My twin boys are 9, and have just started fourth grade. I have many interests outside of the classroom. I enjoy traveling and scuba diving, as well as playing sports. I also like decorating and designing. 
       This is my 8th year teaching 5th grade, and the academic curriculum is very exciting. I look forward to working with you to promote your child's academic, organizational and social growth. We will discover many new things as we travel through our great nation's history, both past and present!
       I believe in a good learning experience built on a cooperative effort between parent, teacher and student. Together, you and I have the same common goal. This goal is to help your child be a happy, well-adjusted learner who is excited about school. My expectations for conduct and standards for academic growth are high. My classroom is a busy environment, with one goal in mind~the love of learning. With your help and participation in and out of the classroom, we can look forward to a productive, creative, fun year together! Welcome to Grade 5!!!
