Welcome to 5th Grade!
This year is going to be amazing and I cannot wait to share it with you. I am so excited to get the year started. I have been a teacher for 17 years. I have taught 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. I specifically have been part of the Temecula Valley Unified School District for 9 of those years. My philosophy in the classroom is that we aren't learning, if we don't make mistakes. Mistakes are welcomed and we all grow from them.
I grew up in Rialto, CA where I graduated from Eisenhower HIgh School and then attended Cal State Fullerton (GO TITANS) for my Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications. After working in public relations for a few years, I realized while I enjoyed it, my heart wasn't quite in it. I went back to Cal State Fullerton and obtained my teaching credential. After a few years of being in education, I decided to go back to school and earned a Masters in Education with an emphasis in Digital Literacy from University of San Diego (GO TOREROS).
I am married to Mr. Kronenfeld and we have two amazing sons, Riley (16) and Brody (11), who also attend schools within TVUSD. We are a baseball family. When we are not at the baseball field watching Riley play, we can be found enjoying family time at the beach, traveling, or in our backyard with our two dogs, Tres and Delilah. Personally, in my free time, I enjoy floating in our pool, reading, and working out on my Peloton.
Here are a few of my favorite things:
1. Ghiradelli milk chocolate caramels
2. Peony flowers
3. Favorite color: Tiffany Blue
4. Favorite coffee drink: Skinny Cold Caramel Macchiato
I look forward to working with you and your child on making this year fun and successful.
