Meet Mrs. Weber

This is my third year at Shell Beach Elementary and I can truly say that I have bought into the Shell Beach culture:
 hook, line, and sinker! I live for the days when I get to inspire students right alongside the breathtaking views of the ocean. In my opinion, room 3 has the best window for whale watching (your students are going to be spoiled)! This is my first year teaching 2nd grade and I am thrilled to be your student's teacher. I am passionate about creating kind, mindful, independent students who take pride in their learning! I know we are going to have a phenomenal year! We are a team and together we can help your student achieve their full potential (I welcome and cherish an open line of communication). It is truly awe inspiring to see children grasp new concepts for the first time. I live for those moments with students. Let's start creating those FINtastic moments together!

My Teaching Philosophy: I believe teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in all of my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. I feel there is an insatiable need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are enthusiastic about working with children. In our competitive society it is important for students to not only receive a substantial education, but to interact with someone who is innately aware of and is sensitive to their individual needs. I am one of those individuals, and I will always strive to be the best educator that I can possibly be.

Fun Facts About Me: I am a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, go Gauchos! While at UCSB I received an English degree with an emphasis in literature and the environment and a minor in applied psychology. I received my teaching credential from Cal Poly (I am biased but I think it is the best program out there)! I am originally from Roseville, California, but I claim San Luis Obispo as my second home; for every couple of months while growing up I would come and visit my grandparents who lived here for over fifty years. I met my husband working at Trader Joe's (who doesn't love TJs?) and we love to play pinball and watch the SF Giants in our free time. I collect hair bows and love decorating my room with as many sharks as possible! 

Wish List: I have everything that your student needs to be successful to start their second grade year! If you are feeling generous a classroom donation would be much appreciated! Throughout the year I would love to receive:

*Black Expo Markers
*Glue Sticks
