Welcome to Kindergarten
at Del Mar Heights Elementary School! I
am Alison Catilus and I have had the honor of working at the Heights for 20
years. I truly love our school and our Heights family. I have taught kindergarten and first grade
throughout my teaching career and love to watch little minds and personalities
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree at Cal State Long Beach, my Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential at Cal State San Marcos, and my Masters in Literacy and Language also at Cal State San Marcos.
I am also a mother of two and I know firsthand what it is like entrusting someone else to take care of your kids. I am thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to be teaching Kindergarten and your little ones. I believe the parent-teacher relationship is an integral part of the educational process. You are your child’s first and most influential teacher. I hope that many of you will volunteer to help in the classroom as well.
I believe all children can reach their full
potential when given a warm, fun, and nurturing environment to grow and learn.
I believe in instilling a love for learning and mutual respect.
"Kindergarten is you know, the garden where the children grow!"
