Welcome to Mrs. Inglish's Class


Welcome to Kindergarten! This is such a big year for your little ones! For some, it is their first school experience. There are many big changes in their lives. We have a lot of changes at our school as well, with new programs and technologies.

Classroom Expectations

We have been focusing on standards based assessment and grading for a number of years. Standards are those things that your child should know or be able to do by the end of each school year. California, along with 44 other states, has recently adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These standards are performance based: what your child can do, how they perform. You can go to the California State Department of Education website to download all the standards for your child's current year in school.  http://www.cde.ca.gov/re/cc

Here are some of the key CCSS we will be focused on this year:

About Me

This is currently my 20th year teaching in West Covina Unified School District. I began at California elementary, as Miss Stoppa, teaching upper grade (fourth and fifth). After five years I moved down to Kindergarten, where I taught for 10 years. I moved up to first grade for 3 years, and now I'm back in Kindergarten! I married in 2006 and have since been Mrs. Inglish. I am also a proud parent to a 7 year old boy, a 4 year old girl, and an18 month old boy. :)  

I received my bachelors degree as well as my teaching credential from Cal Poly Pomona. In May 2010, I graduated from Southwestern Law University and received my Juris Doctorate Degree. I try to translate the issues of justice and fairness from my schooling to my students at Wescove School. I received my Masters in Teaching with a specialization in technology in 2012.
