Cheryl Irick, Kindergarten Teacher
Welcome to Kindergarten in Room 12!
My name is Cheryl Irick and I am so proud and happy to be a part of the wonderful team at Creekside! We offer many different programs at Creekside. I am a part of the traditional English only curriculum.
I've been teaching in Alpine since 1992. I taught 4th and 2nd grades at Boulder Oaks Elementary before becoming a kindergarten teacher at Alpine Elementary and then Creekside. I earned my BA from UC Santa Barbara and my Teaching Credential from UC San Diego. I worked for the Teacher Education Program at UCSD before becoming a teacher in Alpine. Alpine is a wonderful place and I am so fortunate to be a part of this great community.
I truly love kindergarten and find it the most magical of grades. In kindergarten we learn to read and write, add and subtract, become good citizens, and find our passion for learning. In our classroom learning is hands-on, engaging and FUN!
Our motto is: Work Hard, Be Kind.
