    My name is Gina Andersen. I love teaching kindergarten! I'm constantly amazed at how eager my kids are to learn, the things they say, and the energy they have! I look forward to an awesome year in Room 22!

    My Education and Professional Background

    I received my Bachelor of Art Degree in Recreation Administration from California State University, Chico. After working in the industry for six years, I went back to school and got my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Colorado at Denver. I have taught Kindergarten, First, and Second grade in Colorado, California, and Arizona. I have taught at Navarrete since July, 2005.

    My Educational Philosophy

    When a child enters Kindergarten, they step onto a path that leads them through education for the next 12 years. This path should celebrate each child as an individual, filling deficits and celebrating accomplishments alike. I feel that education needs to form the whole child, touching all areas of their being; academic, social, emotional, and physical. As a Kindergarten Teacher, I do everything I can to help each child LOVE school. It’s a long road, they need to enjoy the ride right from the start!
