Welcome to Kindergarten!

Teaching is an absolute passion of mine! I am so excited to be your child's kindergarten teacher this year. Kindergarten is a year full of wonder and curiosity. I can't wait to see your child learn and grow. I'm looking forward to a year full of fun, lots of learning, and plenty of adventures. I can't wait to see what the year has in store for us!

 A little about me. My husband Javier and I have three sons. Joshua, our oldest, is 30. Andrew, our middle son, is 27 and Anthony is 21. He is a junior in college this year. The last members of our family are our two dogs, Appa and Yoshi. They rule the house! We love to travel as often as we can and we are huge LA KINGS hockey fans as well as Liverpool soccer fans. GO KINGS! Go LIVERPOOL!

I received my BA from Cal State San Marcos and my Masters in Education and Teacher Leadership from National University. I have been teaching for 26 years. This will be my 11th year at LaVorgna. I consider myself a life-long learner to be the most effective teacher for my students. I absolutely love kinder! My goal is to create learning experiences that are meaningful, foster creativity, promote thinking, and instill in my little scholars the love of learning. Please feel free to contact me anytime you have questions. Let's keep the lines of communication open. I look forward to a great year working together!
