Welcome to Room 7!
Hello Room 7 Families,
My name is Jennifer Bell. This is my 21st year teaching at Tulita Elementary School and my 18th year teaching first grade.
I am a Southern California native as I grew up in El Segundo, received my Bachelor of Science degree in Child Development, as well as my teaching credential from Cal State Fullerton. I live in Redondo Beach with my husband, two daughters, and three cats.
My philosophy of teaching is simple. I want children to LOVE learning! If I can instill this in my students, I am hopeful it will fuel their desire in becoming lifelong learners. Children have a natural love of learning, but learning in their own way. Some children love to read books, some love to write, some love to actively engage with hand-on manipulatives, and some like to listen rather than read. All of these ways are paths to expressing a love of learning.
Here's to a great year and a memorable first grade experience!
Sincerely, Mrs. Bell
