     I am so happy to be your 3rd grade Distance Learning teacher for the 2020-2021 school year!  I have worked for CVUSD for many years, and this year is my 30th year of teaching! I am a Mom to three young adults, Dr. Jessica Traxler, Mr. Buddy Traxler, and Jamie Traxler, Esquire. My life's goal now is to become a Glamma! (That is a nickname for a glamourous grandma.)  I have adopted a couple of very rambunctious brother and sister cats named Jack and Diane. I am a vegetarian and have taken up gardening.  I like to spend time in my yard planting things and hoping they grow! Lately I have been spending lots of time in my backyard swimming.  When I was a young girl, I used to be a competetive swimmer. I was accepted to Whittier College on a scholarship and I was on the first Women's Water Polo Team there. I have also been trying to do some online Yoga classes and meditation.  I know that it has been a big change being home all of the time.  I am really looking forward to our classtime and getting to know all of you.   

    I am hoping we will have a good 3rd grade Distance Learning year together!
