My name is Brooke Waldrup and I am so excited to begin my second year of teaching in Solana Beach. Last year I was a part of our Online Scholars team teaching 5th grade, so I am very thankful to be in 5th grade again this year in my very own classroom!
Born the daughter of a Firefighter and a Teacher, my heart has always been drawn to helping others! From a young age, I had a classroom set up in our family home and taught my two younger sisters, Brigette and Brielle. I furthered my education and received a BA in Psychology from Lenoir-Rhyne University and then a combined Multiple Subject Credential and Masters in Education from Concordia University-Irvine.
Although new to the education profession, I am extremely passionate about my students and the work I get to do with them on a daily basis.
