WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
So it begins . . . the 2017-2018 school year. I hope your summer was restful and enjoyable!
This is my 18th year teaching; 15 of which have been here at Kastner. While I have always been an intermediate teacher, my career started with Central Unified. I first taught in an "alternative setting," grades 7-8, with approximately 15 students. As years passed, I also took on the K-6 "home school" program. I welcomed the challenge of these two very different programs and gained invaluable knowledge and experience that have helped shape my career as an educator.
It seems surreal to be working at the very school I attended as a teenager. In fact, I attended Tarpey Elementary and was part of the first graduating class from Buchanan High. Students are always amazed when looking through my Kastner yearbook because of our hair and style of dress. My favorite was when a student said, "You had color back then," stunned the entire book was not in black and white.
I look forward to another successful year and am confident this can be accomplished with the help and support of you parents. Please email me with any questions or concerns, and I will respond promptly.
I look forward to seeing you at Back-to-School Night: August 28, 2017.
