Hello! I'm Alicia Barrera your 3rd-grade teacher! I've been teaching 3rd grade for 6 years now, before that I taught 1st grade for 7 years. I am very excited to be your teacher and I am looking forward to all the fun lessons and activities I have planned for you this school year. I hope you love science and the outdoors as much as I do. I love to explore the outdoors, go camping with my family, spend time at our cabin, and go hiking. This summer my family and I explored Lassen Volcanic National Park. This marks the 6th National Park we've explored. My other favorites are Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Redwood. I also enjoy shopping, cooking/baking, and spending time with my 3 children-Gavin, Mateo, and Ellie. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you!
