About the Teacher

Ms. Malneck

Having grown up the the Santa Clarita Valley, I was excited to have the opportunity to teach locally after completing my credential. With the start of the 2019/20 school year, I find myself just as excited as when I began teaching at Arroyo Seco twenty-three years ago.  While the district focuses on both the new Social Studies Framework and Common Core Standards, I look forward to the chance to teach not only history, but also the skills necessary to help children succeed in the world.

Read All About It

Welcome to Arroyo Seco.  We share the same goal - to have a successful year.  My hope is this website will be a tool to help you on that journey.  Click through the tabs above for additional information about the class.

The homework icon above is a link to the class calendar. Unless otherwise posted, homework is due the next day in class.  The homework calendar will be updated daily.  Please note the calendar should not be used as a replacement for the planner. Students are still expected to record the homework in class each day.

Worksheets and other materials are not accessible from this site.  After returning from an absence, students should pick up copies of assignments in class.  When possible I can attach homework to an email if sent early in the day . Please contact me should you need further assistance.
