Hi! I am Mrs. Saffell and I teach second grade here at the BEST elementary school, Abby Reinke! I have been teaching in the Temecula Valley School District since 1995. My husband is a third grade teacher in the district. We like to share ideas and talk about all of the wonderful things that our students can do! We have three children. Our daughter Ashley graduated with her Master's degree in Psychology and is currently working as a behavioral supervisor in North County. Our daughter Kaylyn graduated from the University of California San Diego with a degree in Art Studio. She is married and currently working in Gardena as an assistant project manager. Our son Jacob graduated from Temecula Valley High School. He is married and currently attending CSUSM. We all love the San Diego Padres and the Chargers. We even have a dog named Charger! I love spending time with my family, especially my new granddaughter!
