Mrs. Hartnett - Room 23

Welcome to Room 23.   I am so excited to be your 3rd Grade Teacher!   I am looking forward to meeting each of my new students and can't wait to get to know all about you.  As an educator I am passionate about sharing my love of learning with children.  My goal is to encourage every child to discover his or her true potential and to achieve their dreams.  I am fascinated by the latest brain research and often infuse my lessons with brain breaks, movement and growth mindset shifts.  I strive to provide a nurturing, creative, rigorous, inviting learning environment that encourages every student to feel safe and take risks.   I live in Carmel Valley with my husband, Greg, our three children, Abby & Lily (9th Graders at CHS) and Quinn (a 7th Grader at CMS), our two cats, Pumpkin and Charlie, and our parakeets, Star and Sky. I love the ocean, animals, hiking, yoga, traveling, and teaching!   During my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, knitting and relaxing with family and friends, and walking on the beach. I graduated from University of California, San Diego, Revelle College and received my teaching credential from Chapman College and a Certificate for Differentiated Curriculum / Critical and Creative Thinking, from USC Rossier School of Education.  I began my career in education in 1997 and my experiences as a teacher have been some of the most meaningful of my life.  Knowing that I have had a positive impact on a child's life is the best reward I could hope for in life.  I am honored to be teaching 3rd Grade at this amazing school in one of the most beautiful places in the world.  Please stop by to say hello -- I am so excited to meet you!
