Ms. Essex

Welcome to second grade! I can't wait to get to know each of you throughout the year! If you haven't already done so,  please fill out this survey to help me get to know you.

Here's a little bit about me: I was born and raised in Fremont, where I attended Durham Elementary, Walters Jr. High, and graduated from Kennedy High School. After obtaining a bachelor's degree in music from CSU East Bay , I decided pursue single subject music, and multiple subjects teaching credentials.  I have taught elementary and high school music, and well as kindergarten, first, second, and third grades.  I love working with children, and my passion is challenging students to do their personal best. When I'm not at school, I'm often walking my dog, gardening, playing and creating music, or enjoying time with my family. 

Morning Greeting: My first interactions of the day with our students are critical to their success throughout the day. As such, if you have any requests or questions that require an in-depth response, please either email me or set up an appointment.
