Welcome to Second Grade!
I am so excited to be your child's second grade teacher this year. I truly enjoy teaching, making learning fun and memorable, using many teaching techniques and strategies to reach different learning styles, and creating students who love to learn and come to school. I have taught second, third, fourth, and sixth grades, as well as servicing all grade levels as a Resource Teacher. I have attended Cal State Fullerton University, Weber State University, University of Utah, University of San Diego, UCR, and National University. I have a background in Early Childhood Development, Psychology, Dance, Education, and a CA State Professional Clear Teaching Credential. As you can see, I love learning, too! I also have a background in Dance and Performing Arts, and I believe it is important to integrate the Arts into our schools. I am so pleased to have the opportunity to work as a team with our wonderful VanderMolen families to support and create successful, enthusiastic, and motivated students.
