Ronald Reagan Library Field Trip

With the support of our generous Kaiser PFO and The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute's bus scholarship, our fifth graders were able to visit the Reagan Library for the first time ever. What a wonderful experience we had together!

Have a great summer, Room 10

How exciting to start a new year in 5th grade!  I am looking forward to getting to know each of you throughout the year.

This is my fifth year in 5th grade. I returned to Kaiser after a 15-year journey in school administration. I started my teaching career at Kaiser and both my son and daughter attended Kaiser back in 1995. I have three wonderful grandchildren: Jolie, Matt, and Emma. My husband, Rick and I have been married for 40 years. Time flies!!

Enjoy the last weekend of summer! See you Tuesday!
