Tell us about yourself and your family?

I am a Paso Robles girl all the way. I was born and raised here. My dad is a welder and my mom went to beauty school; they now own Powdercoating USA. I have a little brother named Bradley. By little, I mean five years younger; he’s several inches taller than me now. Bradley is the manager of Powdercoating USA. I am married to my amazing husband Cesar. We have been together for twelve years and married for two. Cesar is a financial analyst for CAPSLO. We live in a 1950’s gingerbread house with our cat Tilly. We enjoy listening to music, cooking, visiting Cambria, and watching animal documentaries.

What are your classroom strengths?

My classroom strength is unit planning. I love putting together themed art projects, books, songs, and group time activities. It is so much fun! My favorite themes to teach are “Dr. Seuss is on the Loose,” farm animals, and insects.

What are some favorite things about working with young children and/or what keeps you passionate motivated about this field? 

My favorite thing about working with young children is their curiosity and ever-intriguing questions. “Ms. Brittney, why does your hair always look the same?” “Ms. Brittney, where is your mom?” I love having conversations with my kiddos about everything from chocolate cereal to new shoes to favorite types of insects. Every day, there are new opportunities for us to get to know each other and connect. My students make me smile, laugh, and cry. My hope is that I make a lasting impact on them as well.

Tell us about yourself and your family?

My lovely family consists of my husband, Andres, and my two kids, Mitzy and Andres. We enjoy horseback riding and spending time as a family.

What are your classroom strengths?

My strengths in the classroom include my university preparation and my 35 years of experience in the field, 17 of which were based in Mexico and 18 from the US. I am also bilingual in Spanish and English, responsible, respectful, and helpful beyond the classroom to the community.

What are some favorite things about working with young children and/or what keeps you passionate motivated about this field? 

One of my favorite things about working with preschoolers is that the kids are intelligent, special, and unique, as such, they are eager to learn. As a teacher I love passing along values, sharing with them wisdom, and teaching them about science, so that along with their curiosity they are able to discover the world and find success in their lives.
