    About The Teacher
    purple line  

         My name is Charlotte Nachazel, pronounced Knock-hazel, and I am ELATED to be teaching kindergarten at Cerritos!  I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona and graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.  My experience with children covers ages 2-16 including work in preschool, kindergarten, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, as well as camp counseling, dance instruction, and mentoring students with intellectual disabilities.  I have a passion for inspiring our young learners to set and surpass their highest goals! I strive for my students to shoot for the stars and dream big! My teaching philosophy embodies a safe place for children to grow and learn at their own pace and in their own way.  I set high expectations and I encourage them to do the same. My classroom is a place of community, happiness, and exploration.

         I currently am on a professional dance team and I teach spin classes. I love to spend time with friends and family. My goal is to be the best possible educator, advocate, and mentor for your children.
