• Welcome to  Room 19. I am honored and excited to be one of your child's teachers this year.  This is my 9th year at PRIDE Academy. I am a San Diego native and was raised in Lakeside where I attended El Capitan High School.  After high school I attended UCSD and majored in literature with additional areas of concentration in psychology and general science. I have also earned a Master's Degree in Education. I love teaching and learning and feel that it is important for me to learn along with my students. 
    I am married and have 1 cat and 1 gecko. I love animals and my other "job" is volunteering with an animal rescue organization.  I hope to share the importance of community involvement with my students and give them opportunities to help others. 
    I strive to maintain a positive and caring atmosphere in our classroom and for all students to feel safe, motivated, and important!  I believe that a person can do anything they set their mind to and with hard work we can all be successful! 
     If you have any questions about classroom procedures, curriculum, or just want to check in on your child's progress please don't hesitate to call or e-mail me. I look forward to a sucessful year for each and every student.
    Ms. Boerman
