Welcome to First Grade!

Welcome to First Grade!

My name is Betsy Whitten. After serving as a long-term substitute at Stella Maris I knew it was the place for me. I feel so fortunate to be a part of this amazing community. I moved to San Diego from Virginia with five years of experience in teaching First Grade and Kindergarten. I have also taught Kindergarten and First Grade as a catechist for Mary, Star of the Sea's Faith Formation classes. I completed my teacher training at Mary Baldwin University. I hold both a California and Virginia Credential and a Master of Science Degree from Kansas State University. I am looking forward to a great year with your children.
