Welcome to the 4th Grade
Mrs. Pickler's Class
I started college at Cypress College where I played softball. It was an amazing experience. I earned my general education degree and transferred to CSUF. At CSUF, I earned my bachelor's degree, teaching credential, and Master's degree. I am very proud of my teacher training at CSUF since it is known as one of the best teacher training institutes around. At the conclusion of my Master's studies, I won the math award for my Master's project which was based on constructivism. I still hold the ideal of constructing your own knowledge a primary ideal for children to learn and retain what they have learned.
I have been teaching for 25 years all at Miller. I love Miller School. Both of my children, Paige and David, attending Miller from Kindergarten through 6th grade. As a parent and teacher, I can see why Miller is an amazing school. The dedication to the students, families, and community is a special characteristic that Miller excels in.
I have kept in touch with many of my former students. I love to hear what great things they are doing. I have been touched to hear that I have had some influence on their life decisions. I have former students that have attended Stanford, Cal Berkeley, UCSB, UCSD, UCSanta Cruz, Univ. of Pacific, CSUFullerton, CSULong Beach, CSNorthridge, CSSan Deigo, UCRiverside, University of Tennessee, Cypress College, and many more.
Career and College Ready is what we talk about everyday. Students leaving my class are ready for the next level. I take great pride in sending my students off to 5th grade knowing they have the skills needed to be successful in both 5th grade and life.
