Welcome!

My goal this year is to meet the individual needs of each child.  I promise to dedicate myself to your child this year and work towards creating a love of learning. 

Our classroom 
environment is welcoming and nurturing and includes participation and hands-on involvement.  Teamwork and communication between home and school is a vital part of learning.  I will try my best to keep you informed of your child’s education. Communication will include Home Connection folders that are to be signed daily as well as a weekly email/ newsletter that will include current spelling words and learning goals. 

 

About Mrs. Torstenson:

My name is Catherine Torstenson and it is my pleasure to welcome your child into 2nd grade! I am so excited to start a new school year! 

Let me tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Montana, where my family still resides.  I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior {Architecture} Design in Denver, Colorado and then moved to Arizona where I received a Post-Baccalaureate Degree in Elementary Education.  Graduating with honors in both programs.  I have worked in the Education field for about 9 years.  This will be my third year teaching my favorite grade - 2nd grade

I am married to a very supportive husband of 22 years and have two beautiful children, a son and a daughter.  {Both attended Settler’s Point!} We also have 2 spoiled pups.  In my spare time I love to read, craft and spend time with family and friends. 

I am truly looking forward to spending the school year with your child!
