Meet Mrs. Stalder!
Welcome to Kindergarten in Room 1! My name is Andrea Stalder and I am delighted to be your child’s teacher this year!
This is my 15th year teaching! I just love helping children learn all of the foundational things they will need to be set up for success. I believe children learn best in a safe, caring environment. I love to make learning fun and memorable and to do it with a hands-on, inquiry based approach. I have high expectations, but I will do whatever it takes to help them meet those expectations with success and joy.
I have a BA in Business Administration from Azusa Pacific University, a Teaching Credential from Point Loma Nazarene University, and a Master's Degree in Teaching from San Diego Christian College. I have taught Kindergarten for 10 years, First Grade for 3 years, and 2nd grade for 1 year. Prior to becoming a teacher, I worked as a Senior Training Specialist for a large Fortune 200 Insurance company. I decided to leave the business world and come to elementary education because of my love for teaching and my love of children.
I am here to support you too! If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask! I look forward to partnering with you in teaching your child this year. I know that as we work together, this year will be a huge success!
These are a few of my favorite things:
Color - Blue
Food - Pizza & In-N-Out
Drink - Diet coke & chocolate drinks from Starbucks and Coffee Bean
Candy - I love all milk chocolate treats - but my favorites include M&Ms, Twix, Oreos, and Milk Chocolate Sees
Hobbies - photography, scrapbooking, quilting, sewing, and reading. My favorite hobby though is doing anything with my husband and golden retriever.
