Welcome to first grade! This is my second year here at Victoria Elementary School teaching first grade and I am very excited to continue my career as a Tenacious Tiger! I received my B.A. and credentials at CSUSB. Go Yotes! I feel so fortunate to be part of such an amazing, supportive community of students, parents, and educators. I absolutely love teaching and enjoy what each day brings through my door. I teach because I inspire, I build, I challenge, and I care. I am dedicated to establishing a developmentally age-appropriate classroom by encouraging emotional and social growth, allowing the students to be independent when necessary, and allowing their individual strengths to flourish. I am married to my high school sweetheart and recently gave birth to my sweet boy. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my little family, going to Disneyland, traveling, and catching up with friends.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns during the year. Emily_Santellan@redlands.k12.ca.us
I am looking forward to a highly successful school year!!
