Ms. Emily Van Andel - 3rd Grade
This is my 21st year of teaching, with 20 of these years being in Tehachapi schools. I have taught four different grade levels: 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th. This year I begin a new adventure, teaching RTI (intervention) in reading & math in grades 1-5, schoolwide.
I recieved my K-12 education right here in Tehachapi. I attended Wells Elementary (now our TUSD office), Golden Hills Elementary, Jacobsen Junior High School, and Tehachapi High School. I continued my education at Bakersfield college and then CSU, Fresno where I recieved both my Bachelor's Degree and CA Teaching Credential. I have continued my education with classes at CSU, Bakersfield, Point Loma Nazarene University, and Fresno Pacific University.
