About the Teacher

  • My name is Sandra Souza and I am extremely excited to be your child’s 3rd grade teacher this year. I will be guiding your child on the wonderful adventure of 3rd Grade. 

    This will be my 31st year teaching.  I have been teaching 3rd grade at TLES since it opened in 2007.  Prior to TLES, I taught second grade at Helen Hunt Jackson and taught 11 years in the Solana Beach School District. I received my Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree and teaching credential from San Diego State University and my Masters of Education degree from Grand Canyon University.

    I live in Fallbrook with my husband, Randy, three dogs, two cats, and many chickens.  We have raised three amazing young men and we love family time at the beach, kayaking, gardening, biking, traveling, and horseback riding.

    It is my mission to foster a love for life long learning, inspire my students to do their personal best while going above and beyond, and become confident, creative thinkers. 

    I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
