Mrs. Maldonado

Hello! My name is Mrs. Maldonado and I will be your child's TK teacher for the 2020-2021 school year. I have been teaching for 16 years and all here at Gaines! I have taught preschool, Kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and TK. I would have to say that TK is my favorite.
I received my Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies from Cal State Long Beach and I also have my Masters Degree in Education.
I am married and have two little boys of my own. Samuel is 4 and Vincent is 7. I love exercising, hiking in the mountains, bike riding, and working in our garden at home together.
While we are not starting school in our classroom, please know that Room 1 is OUR classroom. I am going to do everything I can to make our time together fun, educational, and easy for families. We are in this together and we will make this distance learning work together. If questions arise, which I'm sure they will, please don't hesitate to email me at:
