Meet Ms. Areli Rodriguez
Hello! My name is Areli Rodriguez and I am SO excited to continue to be a part of the GOALS Academy family. This will be my first year teaching 2nd grade at GOALS Academy. I currently teach dance after school for the Big Labs and Little Labs programs, which I absolutely love being a part of.
I grew up in Santa Ana, California. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in Dance from the University of California, Riverside. Shortly after, I pursued my Masters and credential in teaching at the University of Southern California. I like bright colors, especially all shades of blue. I love the rain, but from the inside of the house that has a glass window to have a view of it while I have a cup of hot coffee/tea in my hands. During my spare time, I take dance classes, dance professionally, and play the guitar. Oh, and I LOVE baking chocolate chip cookies!
I am looking forward to a year of learning, fun, and adventures! I believe learning is a life-long process. Part of my goal as an educator is to spark curiosity in the minds of students. Some of the topics we study in 2nd grade are: long vowels, punctuation, story elements, multi-digit addition and subtraction, money, time, geometry, earth science, and much more!
I want to partner with you in order to best support your child. I welcome any questions, comments, or concerns you may have and can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
