Hello! My name is Mrs. Green and I teach third grade here at the Placer Academy for Accelerated Learning. I am a Chico State graduate (Go Wildcats) having earned my B.A degree in Social Work in 1995. Later, I attended Fresno State where I earned a Master’s degree in Counseling. Then in 2008, I finished an elementary teaching credential program through CalState TEACH. Since earning my teaching credential I have worked for Rocklin Unified School District, Western Placer Unified School District, Rocklin Academy, Horizon Charter School, and here at Placer Academy. I absolutely love teaching! There is no place I would rather be every day than in my classroom with my students. Students will find my classroom to be interactive, supportive, and comfortable. I am very conscientious about modeling my classroom expectations of respect, responsibility and resourcefulness. I invite students to make mistakes because we can all learn from mistakes. I don’t expect perfection from my students. I encourage them to strive to be the best they can be. Third grade is full of fun and adventure!
My name is Tricia DeJersey and I teach 4th grade at Placer Academy. I have had the pleasure of teaching 3rd, 4th, 5th grade, and Transitional Kindergarten. With the wide range of grades that I have taught I have been able to relate to many levels of learning and it has aided me in the ability to identify student strengths of all ages. I received my education through Sacramento State University and my teaching credential at Chapman University. I have taught for Western Placer Unified School District as well as the Newcastle School district. Teaching is my passion and working with children is a gift. My students and I have a relationship that is based on respect, dedication, and consistency. I believe in every child’s potential and thrive on the possibility of all things. I’m very happy to be a part of such an enthusiastic group of teachers, parents, and students here at Placer Academy.
