Ms. 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.  Third grade is such a wonderful year, full of field trips, learning and fun.  As an educator I am passionate about sharing my love of learning with children.  My goal is to encourage children to discover their own unique gifts.  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 classroom 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 (Sophomores at CHS) and Quinn (an 8th 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, walking on the beach, and relaxing with family and friends. I graduated from University of California, San Diego, UCSD's Revelle College and received my teaching credentials from Chapman College and a Certificate for Differentiated Curriculum / Critical and Creative Thinking, from USC Rossier School of Education.  My 22 years as a teacher have been some of the most meaningful moments of my life.  Knowing that I have made a positive impact on a child's life is the best reward I could hope for.  I am honored to be teaching 3rd Grade at our wonderful school in one of the most beautiful places in the world.  Please stop by to say hello -- I am looking forward to meeting you!
