Mrs. Emily Cirka

      Welcome to 1st Grade Timberwolves!  I am so excited to share this journey with a wonderful new group of firsties!  While this year is beginning differently than in years past, nothing can hinder the innate curiosity and love of learning that shines naturally in first grade friends.  One of my favorite parts of teaching first grade is enjoying the tremendous academic and social growth that first graders accomplish year after year.  They are little sprouts that will blossom into full bloom between August and June.  

     My family made the move from Carlsbad to Temecula in 2011, and we are so happy to be a part of this close-knit, family oriented community. My husband and I have two kids.  Our oldest, Allison, went to TMS and TVHS, and is beginning her third year at UC Davis. Jack went to Abby and TMS, and is a Sophomore this year at TVHS.  (Go Bears!) 

     For fun, I like to watch movies, travel with my family, take lots of photographs, and spoil our black labradoodle rescue puppy, Bob Ross.   

     Get ready to have an AWESOME year together!
