Orca Classroom

3rd Grade 2021-2022

With lively laughs and gallant giggles, our classroom is full of imagination. We dig, discover, and jump on the unexpected moments when curiosity meets comprehension. We always look for opportunities to question dynamically, to work collaboratively, and to learn constantly!

About Mrs. Yahr

This is my third year at University Preparation Charter School, my fifth year in public elementary schools, and my twentieth year as an educator! Before teaching at UPCS, I taught in the Ventura Unified School District, at Ventura College, and at San Francisco State University. I obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance from University of North Carolina School of the Arts and a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Arts Education from San Francisco State University's Inter-Arts Center. I live in Ventura with my husband, two teenaged sons, cat, dog, and tortoise. I love reading mystery novels, camping in my van at the beach, and drinking coffee in the morning.
