Meet Mrs. Verdugo


I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year!

A little about me...

This is my ninth year teaching in the Santee School District and my eighth year at Carlton Hills. I absolutely love teaching First Grade. I attempt to teach my students with a passion for each academic area that will encourage them to become lifelong learners. It is my goal to provide my students with creative and fun lessons that fill them with a desire to explore and engage in their learning now and for years to come.

I grew up in East County most of my life. I went to Steele Canyon High School and graduated from SDSU with a degree in Journalism Media Studies and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I have a wonderful supportive husband and we have a very happy and energetic two year old with another little boy on the way! I love to spend my free time with my son reading books, watching movies with my family, crafting, and making awesome learning materials for the classroom!

I am so excited to work with you and your child this year!
