Hello! I’m Mrs. Herrera! I’ve been a Kindergarten teacher at Saddleback Elementary School since January 2013. Before that, I was a parent, Copa Kids Instructor and a paraprofessional at MUSD for 4 years. I have a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction. I LOVE being a kindergarten teacher. Watching my Kinder Darlings blossom throughout the year gives me more joy than I can express. My teaching philosophy can be boiled down to three words: warm but demanding. We have so much fun in my classroom, as music, movement and art are deeply important to me, but I also run a very tight ship!
Personally, I am married to my best friend, Mr. Herrera. We have four kids (Aiden 20, Saige 17, Liam 8 and Penelope Sunshine 1). We love to go on adventures together, BBQ and just spend time together as a family.
I look forward to the start of the school year and am ready to meet my new group of Littles!
