Hi, my name is Mrs. Foster and I am thrilled to be a Raptor this year! I am new to Rice Canyon, but not new to the district or teaching. This is my eighth-year teaching. I completed my bachelor’s degree at Cal State University San Bernardino in 2003. I continued on with my teaching credential and master’s degree in Education at Azusa Pacific University in 2005.
When I am not in my classroom I am loving on my dear family. I have been married for thirteen years, and I have a cute kindergartner and a sweet second grader. My family and I love to travel and find adventure. You will often see us out on Lake Elsinore pulling the kids or wake boarding and wake surfing the day away. We often spend the weekends riding motorcycles together or camping at the beach.
In the classroom, I am a huge believer in teaching and equipping scholars to take personal responsibility for their learning. I believe that fostering positivity and intrinsic motivation within a scholar breeds a lifelong learner. I work hard to teach my scholars to be organized and confident problem solvers. I work hard to teach to the individual student. I just absolutely love teaching! Mrs. Hoover and I are going to have a great time this year with our 5th grade scholars!
