Welcome to third grade!

My name is Vicki Pool and I'm proud and excited to be part of the Boulder Oaks Elementary School team!  We are a close-knit group who bring out the best in each other and in our students.

I started my teaching career a million years ago in Lemon Grove where I taught 10 years before moving to Alpine.  I feel very fortunate to have had the fantastic opportunity to teach where I live and send my children to my school.  Yes, they even survived in my class.

I have been teaching in Alpine since 1991, and have taught most elementary grades from pre-k to eighth in my career.  I seem to have found a special attachment to third grade!  One of the best things ever is I job share with Kris Itokazu and have for 22 years!  We pride ourselves in being a well-oiled machine.

I received my BA at SDSU, go Aztecs, and completed my Masters in curriculum and instruction at American College of Education.  I have a GATE certificate and continue my education through in-services, conferences and workshops.  Learning is lifelong for me.

Personally, I am married with three grown children in which two also teach!  Go figure!  My greatest joy is my one-year-old grandson.  I will show you multiple picutres if you ask!  My belief is that teaching should be creative and FUN!  If I am having fun in the classroom my students will too, and as a result learning will take place.  The atmosphere should be safe and nurturing.  I work very hard to make sure my classroom reflects these qualities.  I feel privileged that parents trust me with their most prized possession daily.

Our classroom motto is "I Can, I Will, and I'll Try."
