Mrs. McLaughlin

Welcome 5th Grade Students and Parents!

 

I am looking forward to a great 5th grade year with you. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work at Greenbrook this year with such a wonderful group of teachers. This will be my 17th year of teaching and I still love coming to school every day to work with children!

1. I am from Hawaii - born and raised.

2. My family has one pet - a miniature dachshund. Her name is Pua (Hawaiian word for flower).

3. I attended U.C. Berkeley and majored in Chinese Sociology and played on the women's soccer team. Go Bears!

4. My family means the world to me. I live with my husband and two boys, Sam and Charlie, in Walnut Creek.

5. If I weren't a teacher, I would be a nurse or another profession that provided support to others.

6. I absolutely LOVE to travel and have been to some interesting and remote places.

7. My favorite movie is Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory - the original movie. I love Charlie Bucket!

8. Having good manners is very important to me.

9. I understand that every child is unique. 

10.Inside the classroom, I feel it's important to balance academic development with other areas of a child's development such as social relationships and emotional intelligence.
