Welcome to Riverside! My name is Jennifer Holbrook and I'll be teaching 1st grade at Riverside this year. I am so excited to meet your children and have a fun filled year. This will be my fourth year at Riverside, but my seventh year of teaching. In addition to teaching first grade, I've taught 5th grade math for one year, kindergarten for two years, and 3rd grade for one year. Before getting my own classroom, I was also a substitute teacher for two years.
I grew up in a small town about an hour north of Los Angeles, California. I graduated from California State University, Northridge (CSUN) in 2010 with my BA in Liberal Studies. I then continued to attend CSUN for my teaching credential in 2011, and then my MA in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Language and Literacy in 2013.
When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Rob, and our son, Cooper. Most of my family still lives down in Los Angeles, so I visit whenever I can. We also enjoy going to Portland and quick day trips to the coast.
This school year, my husband and I are expecting our second child at the beginning of September. I will be on maternity leave through the end of November and will return full time on December 2nd. My sub is Mr. Donoho and he will set your child up for success this school year and fill in for me until I return.
Please email me with ANY questions or concerns.
