I have been teaching kindergarten at Guadalupe for 14 years. I got my bachelor's degree in Clinical/Counseling Psychology with Minors in Child Development and Special Education. I got my Teaching Credential after working in a before/after school program at the YMCA with K-5th graders, a preschool with 2-5 year olds and teaching 4th, 5th & 6th grades at a private school. I also have 8 1/2 years experience as a 1:1 aide for autism.
I love teaching and making learning fun. I love science and social studies. I am excited to be your teacher and can't wait for a wonderful 2018-2019 school year. Sincerely, Mrs. Walpole
