Hello! My name is Deanna Trakas and I am so excited to be teaching Kindergarten at Bridges Elementary this year. This will be my 21st year of Teaching. I have taught 3rd grade, 2nd grade, ELL K-8, and the past 16 years I have been teaching my absolute favorite, Kindergarten!!! I earned my BA in Liberal Arts with a minor in Early Childhood Studies at CAL State East Bay in 1997. Afterwards, I was accepted into the Teacher Certification program and obtained my highly qualified status as a certified teacher in 1998.
I can't wait to meet you and get this year started! There will be lots of opportunities to contribute to our learning environment .
