About Me

Welcome to Mrs. Fontana's 2nd grade class! I am so thrilled to be your son/daughter's teacher this year. This is my 21st year teaching. I taught for BCSD for 6 years and taught grades 2nd,3rd, and 5th. I then transferred to Norris Elementary in 2005 and taught 2nd and 3rd grade there. I joined the Veteran's team August of 2016 and have only taught 2nd grade here. I love 2nd grade and I am excited to continue teaching the grade I love. 
 
I am a graduate of North High School, Bakersfield College, and Cal State Bakersfield. I have my bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies. I have also continued to take online Graduate classes to continue my education and further my knowledge in the teaching profession. 
 
I have three children of my own. Ensley (19) who will be a Freshman at University Riverside (first kid to go away to College), Abby (15) who will be Freshman at Stockdale, and Preston (11) who will be a 5th grader at Norris Elementary. All of my kids went through Norris Elementary and Norris Middle School since Kindergarten. I love this District. I am also a graduate of Norris Middle School. 
 
In my spare time I enjoy making memory books for my kids, working out, dancing, snowboarding, and cheering on my kids at their Volleyball and Football games. 
 
Our classroom is decorated in the "Hollywood" Theme and is ready for another school year. 
 
A couple fun facts about your teacher:
1. I can talk like Donald Duck
2. When I was 7 I started in show business and did commercials, sit-coms, movies, and modeling. I ended that career and started going to college for teaching at 18 years old. You may see me on "Full House" on the episode titled "Tanner vs. Gibbler".  
 
I'm ready for a great year!! I hope you are too!
