Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Thalia Ormsby and I have been teaching in the Del Mar Union School District for 9 years. I began my career teaching 1st grade for seven years, then I taught 4th grade and now I'm thrilled to be teaching in 6th grade! I attended UCLA and received a BA in Psychology. I also played water polo professionally and at UCLA winning 3 National Championships. One of my biggest achievements in life was representing my country in the 2004 Athens Olympics where we took home the bronze medal. After my playing career ended, I went into teaching. I come from a family of teachers, so his profession runs in my blood. I'm married to my college sweetheart and have two kids, Gavin who started Kindergarten this year in Encinitas and a daughter, Anika (Ani) who is almost 4. I love being a mom and you can usually find my family in he pool or at the beach. I think my family carries an amphibious gene. :) I’m excited to be your child's teacher and helping them grow both academically and personally. It’s going to be a wonderful year!
