Celebrating Mrs. Jones and Mrs. DeLeo
As we head into this final week before Spring Break, we would like to take the opportunity to celebrate two incredible women! As you may know, Mrs. Jones and Mrs. DeLeo will be retiring at the end of this school year and Stoneridge will not be the same without them! Although this is my first year at Stoneridge, I am so thankful that I have had the opportunity to get to know these two ladies who are fantastic educators and wonderful, caring, and passionate people. In this post they share below a little about themselves and what they are looking forward to in the future.
Please take a moment to share a favorite memory or a celebratory comment at the bottom of this post.
Congratulations and best wishes to you both!
I think I always knew I would be a teacher. I tutored at the elementary school next door to my high school and I was a counselor for outdoor education for many years. I was a Rotary Club exchange student to Mexico. After going to UCD and earning a bilingual teaching credential, I taught English learners and 6th grade in Davis. My husband's career took us to Florida where I taught 1st grade, 4th grade, and I even owned a preschool. I've been here in Roseville for 22 years (7 years at Cirby and 15 of my favorite years right here at Stoneridge.)
The best part of teaching is watching the children and their parents grow as they learn from their friends and each other. Being able to create a loving classroom full of exciting learning experiences has been my goal and my joy. I will miss my students, their parents, and my awesome colleagues who have helped me continue to learn and laugh.
As we retire, Dave and I are looking forward to EVERYTHING! I wish I could thank you each for being a part of my journey.
I've taught 33 years, 14 at Stoneridge
I look forward to lots of family time, traveling and volunteering
I will miss the kids, their families and my colleagues TREMENDOUSLY
Teaching has brought me immense JOY ~ I have absolutely LOVED being a teacher!
