Meet your teacher....
My husband and I grew up in the South Bay. We have two children, Sophia - age 10 and Vivian - age 6. Both girls attend Soleado, where Sophia is in Mrs. Donahoe's 5th Grade class and Vivian is in Ms. Burson's 1st Grade class. This is my 14th year here at Soleado and I feel super lucky to be a part of this wonderful school! In addition to an Elementary Teaching Credential, I have a Masters Degree in Technology and a Secondary Authorization to teach Math and Science up to 9th grade.
My husband, Scott Ellis, teaches 6th/7th Grade English at Ridgecrest Intermediate School and has a Single Subject Credential in English.
