I'm Ms. Friedel and I'm very excited to spend this year teaching fifth grade!  
    Ms. Friedel and her young daughter riding the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland
    I grew up in Encinitas, earned my bachelor's degree at San Diego State University, my teaching credential at CSU San Marcos, and then went on to earn my Masters in Mathematics Education.  This will be my fifteenth year of teaching and during that time I have taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grades. 
    In my free time I love spending time with her at the beach, park, Disneyland, doing puzzles, and spending time with my daughter.  I also love to run and I try to read whenever I get some quiet time.  One of my favorite pastimes that I do get to do every day is cooking (and eating!). 
     I'm looking forward to a great year!
