We are very excited to announce that we have received two applications for the CAC Parent Representative position, namely Michelle Kiefer and Kimberly Owens. In order to allow adequate time for the voting process, we will hold the CAC election in August, when we return to school.
I'm Lesley Morris, and I'm happy to be teaching my third year here at CMP Capitol in the Golden Gate classroom. I have been a classroom teacher since I completed my credential program at San Francisco State in 2000. I have a Master's Degree in Education with a specialty in literacy. In 2008, I completed AMI Montessori training at Loyola University Maryland and have been working as a Montessori teacher since then. Most of my teaching experience prior to working at CMP was with younger grade levels from K-3, and I have tremendously enjoyed the transition to working with older students in 4-6 grades.
In my personal life, I was born in San Diego but moved to Sacramento before I was a year old and have always considered it to be my home. Although I got my undergraduate degree at UC Santa Cruz and subsequently moved to San Francisco, I returned to Sacramento in 2000 to buy a home and raise my family. My husband and I have three girls, 14, 11, and 5 and we're very excited for our youngest to be starting kindergarten this year at CMP Capitol.
I love teaching in the Golden Gate classroom and working with so many amazing students and their families. I'm looking forward to another wonderful year teaching my class!
