Mrs. Katie Padilla » Welcome to Kindergarten!

Welcome to Kindergarten!

Hello! I teach Kindergarten here at Our Lady of the Assumption. I earned my Bachelor Degrees in Psychology and Child Development at Cal-State Northridge. After graduation, I continued my education and earned my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at Azusa Pacific University.  
I am the proud mom to three incredibly awesome daughters that attend OLA.  Our favorite place to visit is Disneyland. My favorite color is pink. My favorite snacks are popcorn, red licorice and peanut m&m's.  I enjoy reading!

Happy Monday!

Thank you to the parents that helped with Art Trek today. 

Sunday was Palm Sunday and the children are talking about Easter and how God gave Jesus new life. Today they brought home  the Easter Story. Please have them share it with you.

If you are available to help at lunch tomorrow, we would appreciate your help. Thank you.
