Dear Room 8 Families:


    Welcome back!  I hope you all had a wonderful summer.  Let me start off by saying that I love teaching at Carlton Oaks!  I am looking forward to working with you and your children. 


    About Me:

    My name is Courtney Bueno.  This is my tenth year teaching in the Santee School District and my seventh year teaching at Carlton Oaks.  I graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies.  I also have a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and a Master’s Degree in Teacher Education from the University of Phoenix.  I am originally from Atascadero, California.  I am married and I live in Pacific Beach.  I love to read, go to the bay and concerts, and spend time with family and friends.  I have a son, Jake, who turned three this summer and a baby girl named Cadence.  The kids love to come visit the classroom, so you will see tm often.  :)



    I emphasize making good choices in the classroom and on the playground.  I believe in praise and encouragement and I have a high regard for your child’s self-esteem.  We are currently using a fun program called Class Dojo for our behavior management system.  You will receive an email with information on how to sign up to view your child's progress. I also have a reward system for excellent individual, group, and whole class behavior. 


    Again, I am looking forward to a great year with your children!  Please feel free to contact me to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.  You may reach me at school at 956-4528 or by email at courtney.bueno@santeesd.netI will check my voice mail and email on a daily basis and I will return messages at the end of the day.



    Courtney Bueno
