Welcome to fourth grade and room 6!  It has been my privilege to have been teaching at Lakeside Farms since 1996.  I previously taught in Los Angeles, grades 4-8, in various schools throughout the county.  I enjoy teaching fourth grade the most, but have taught grades 2-8 at different times in my career.  Previously, it's been my pleasure to have directed the Lakeside Farms chorus, coordinate our school program for students who are English language learners, and lead site programs.  I also teach a class for parents interested in getting to know more about the school system entitled, "School Smarts."  I am on School Site Council (SSC) and love being a part of the our school community.  There are so many wonderful things going on at Lakeside Farms...thanks for making our school so terrific. 
Teaching has always been my passion and I look forward to each day with lots of enthusiasm. Please feel welcome to volunteer in our room.  Check with me as to which days and times we have available.  Make sure to always check in at the office, too!
I am married and have three children--young adults, really.  I absolutely love being a wife and mother and value my time with my family very much.  My youngest son is married and  in the Navy.  My other two children are starting their careers in education, as well. I am very excited to see the birth of my first grandchild in January!

Some of my passions include dancing, traveling, reading, swimming, skiing, running, going to the gym, and spending time with my family and friends.

Our classroom was originally constructed in 1961 as Fallout Shelter that was big enough to shelter the entire community of Lakeside.  The shelter was equipped with a water purifier, generator, and provisions.  As the world changed, our shelter was remodeled and turned into classrooms.  Today, we have modern amenities and a true community of 5th graders that enjoy the uniqueness of their sub-terranian classroom!

I grew up in Santee and Lakeside and graduated high school from El Capitan High School, my parents also graduated from El Cap!  I then attended Grossmont College, San Diego State University and received my Bachelor's Degree and teaching credential from National University in Interdisciplinary Studies and my Master's Degree in Educational Technology. 

My father's family has been in Lakeside since the1880's,  I even have a photo of my great grandparents in a wagon on Maine Street with a horse pulling them!  I live in Lakeside, have three daughters and one granddaughter; the older two have now graduated from college, our oldest works as a Social Worker in San Diego, my middle daughter is a Sspecial Education Teacher, an my youngest is in her third year at Southern Utah University working on a degree in Biology and Criminal Justice.  My grandaughter started Transitional Kindergarten this year!  


In my free time and during school holidays, I love to spend time traveling.  I've been to Italy, France, England, Ireland, and over thirty states!  When on breaks from school, I love to read books; detective mysteries are my current favorites, photography and art are also hobbies I dabble in and when I have time, I also try to squeeze in creating scrapbooks of my trips.

One could say I am a native of Lakeside.  After attending the LUSD school system and graduating from El Capitan, I ventured to UCSB.  Eventually, I found my way back down to San Diego and Graduated from UCSD  and continued on with their teacher education program. 
I was fortunate enough to get my first teaching job at Tierra del Sol Middle School working as a Special Education teacher.  While at TdS, I completed my Masters of Education in Special Education at SDSU.  In 1995 an opportunity to work at Lakeview opened up and I transferred into a 5th grade classroom.  Since then, I have taught a variety of grade levels and became a Nationally Board Certified Teacher.  For 16 years I had been fortunate enough to share a contract with some amazing teachers.  This allowed me to find the perfect balance for the two main passions in my life, my teaching career and my family.  In 2015, I decided to go full circle and teach at the school that I attended as a child.  What a fantastic decision to join the Lakeside Farms team!
I have been blessed with 2 daughters and a wonderful husband.  My family enjoys spending time together volunteering, camping and traveling.
Be it a friend from my youth, a former student, or someone new, please come by and say hello!

Greetings! My name is Kat McNiece, and I am a speech-language pathologist.
I have been working in the field of speech pathology for over 15 years, and I've had jobs in a variety of settings within my field, from private clinics to hospitals, and now in the schools. I have found that I absolutely love working with kids--there is always so much fun and excitement with kids, so much hope and joy. Because of my medical background in speech pathology, and now my 8 years of experience in the school system, I feel like I can tackle many questions in my field. So please feel free to call me any time, or stop me in the halls. I love to talk about my profession!
When I'm not at work, I'm busy spending time with my family of 6, going on picnics, roller skating, bowling, and inventing new recipes in my kitchen. I love the simple things in life, like playing catch, hiking, card games, and singing and dancing with my family.
I look forward to each and every day of working with your students, answering your questions, and developing friendships at this wonderful school!

Hi! My name is Karen Wright and I was a teacher at Lindo Park since 1996. I have taught Kindergarten, First grade, Second grade and Fourth grade.  I am really looking forward to this year!!  I seems that things continue to get better and better every single year!

Teaching is my 2nd career. I received my Degrees in Ornamental Horticulture and Art from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo.  After college, I managed my own business called, "Karen's Interior Gardens."   I created wedding flowers, designed gardens, indoors and outdoors and I also had all of the branches of the once popular, "Grossmont  Bank."  I did the gardening...inside and out at all of their bank branches. I had my business for about 19 years and I enjoyed every minute of it! From it, I still continue my love of flowers, plants, teaching plant care classes, and designing gardens.
