Ms. Houghton's Class

“You have to eat oatmeal or you'll dry up. Anybody knows that.”

- Eloise, Kay Thompson, 1955


In this classroom we believe that learning is a lifelong adventure. We believe in facing each day with our minds open to knowledge and our hearts open to love. We believe in the freedom to wonder, to ask, to explore, to imagine, and to create. We believe that success means trying our best and feeling proud of our efforts. We believe that each of us has a special talent, and that the talents of each of us, helps all of us. We believe in ourselves, in each other and in this classroom!


I am looking forward to a wonderful year!

I was born and raised in Northern California and I love the Bay Area. My husband and I have raised our two children here and feel very fortunate to be a part of this community. I love to be outside, eat good food and hang out with my friends and family. Twenty eight years ago my dream of being a teacher became a reality.

Everyday is a new adventure and I LOVE every minute of it! Here’s to another great year and many more to follow!
