Meet Mrs. PoirierGreetings kindergarteners and families! My name is Shani Poirier and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I have an exciting year planned! Kindergarten is a magical year and I look forward to sharing this wonderful time with your child as they learn and grow!
Let me tell you a little about myself. I grew up in La Mesa and now live in Scripps Ranch with my husband of 24 years and my three children. My oldest son is a junior at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (OUR COLLEGE!). I have another son who will be a freshman in college at the University of Maryland, a daughter in 10th grade and two dogs Smokey and Lola. I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, and traveling. I also love doing outdoor activities like bike riding, hiking, and paddle boarding .
I earned my Bachelor’s degree and Teaching Credential at San Diego State University in 1989 and later earned a Master’s Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. I did my student teaching in Santee and began teaching in 1990. I have had the pleasure of teaching EAK, kindergarten, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade. I LOVE teaching and feel so blessed to have a career I am so passionate about. I hope to make your child's learning experience a fun and exciting one, as well as instill a love for learning that will carry with them throughout his or her life.
