Dear GHS 4th Grade Parents:

     Please count this as a letter of introduction, as I know you may be curious about your student's teacher. First of all, I have pretty much been a teacher my entire life, as I had younger sisters and neighbor kids that I babysat from the time I was eight years old. I have also taken care of kids in the nursery at church and taught Sunday School and V.B.S. my entire life. Teaching just seemed the natural thing to major in when I went to college, because I dearly love children!

     I have two degrees, one in Business Education (A secondary degree in technology, etc.) and one in Elementary Education. I completed my fifth year and Master's degree from California State University, Bakersfield in 1996/1997 in Curriculum and Instruction, with a special emphasis in Science. That is why I am so excited to be teaching the science classes for our Team Friday sessions that will begin in September or October. I adore science experiments, and I have found out that the kids do, as well!

     I have been teaching at Tehachapi Unified School District full time for over eighteen years, and I substitute taught before that for four years, so I have been around T.U.S.D. for a while! Actually, I have had the privilege to teach full time at all four {I was at Wells first.) elementary schools AND the junior high school. But most of my career has been at Golden Hills Elementary School, and I consider this home because we are such a family here.

     The thing you will learn from your kids very quickly is that my goal is to make learning a BLAST, so that they will long to discern more and more and more! I truly strive to teach your "kidlings" to be problem solvers and lovers of education; then, they will forever be seeking knowledge and understanding, AND they will NEVER stop learning! With this passion, I ask you to partner with me and help your children become the best they can possibly be! Thank you for this incredible opportunity.


     Fondly and Cordially yours,


     Mrs. Denise S. Trone
