Hello! I'm Mrs. Michelle Latka. This is my 13th year teaching and my 9th year as an Olinda Eagle. I have taught TK, K, 1st, 2nd, and 5th Grade. I went to California State University, Fullerton where I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Child and Adolescent Development, my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, and my Masters of Science Degree in Education, Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Early Childhood Education. I live in the city of Orange with my husband, Ryan and daughter, Emma. I enjoy running, baking, going to the beach, going out to eat, and shopping at Target. My favorite color is pink and ice cream and chocolate chip cookies are my favorite treats. I love teaching my students to be the best they can be and instilling a lifetime love of learning. I look forward to getting to know you and your child. It's going to be a great year!
