Greetings! My name is Jacqueline Scholz. I am thrilled to be your child’s 5th grade teacher. This is my eighth year teaching and my second year here at Del Mar Hills. I absolutely love this amazing school community.
I am a devoted teaching professional with a focus on growth mindset. I work to instill in students a love for learning and a willingness to take academic risks in a safe and nurturing environment. I firmly believe the privilege of shaping young minds is not one to be taken lightly, and I teach from the perspective that each child is unique and learns in a different way. In fact, one of my important jobs as a teacher is to help students discover their individuality and work alongside with them to maximize it.
Originally from Boston, I studied in Florida where I earned a Bachelor of Arts. Next, I made a home in beautiful San Diego, earning a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential as well as a Master of Arts in Teaching and Learning. Upon completion, I relocated to Kauai, where I began my elementary teaching career in 5th and 6th grade. After six successful years of teaching on Kauai, my family and I returned to San Diego. We're glad to now call Cardiff our home! I love spending free time with my husband, our precious four-year-old son, and our lively Australian Shepard. We're a family that loves the ocean and new adventures!
