Meet Ms. Calderon

Welcome to 2nd Grade!!

This is going to be a wonderful school year! Together, I hope to work as a team to motivate your child to be the best student and human they can be. Our time together will not just be about reading, writing, math, social studies, and science, but also about how to socialize, how to be kind, how to succeed, and how to fail gracefully and to learn from these failures.  Together, we will motivate and inspire your children to grow academically and emotionally. 


My job is to create responsible independent learners who are not afraid to take educational risks, but who know they are being nurtured and that they have a teacher who is “there” to support their educational journey.


This will be my 15th year teaching and my 5th year teaching 2nd grade at Veterans Elementary School.  I have previously taught in the PBVUSD for 10 years in various grade levels including K, 1st, 3rd, and 4th.  I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies and California Teaching Credential in 2005 from California State University of Bakersfield.  I have two beautiful children who also attend Veterans. My passion is teaching and I love working at Veterans with the best staff in Bakersfield!  I enjoy hiking, reading, going to the movies, or the beach, and spending time with my family who all live in Bakersfield as well. 
I am thrilled to have the privilege of having your child in my class this year!
