Greetings Room E-2 Families! My name is Ami Lakeman, and I am thrilled to be teaching your child this year! I am a Bay Area native, who grew up in Fremont. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies with an option in Early Childhood Development from California State University, East Bay. I also received my Multiple Subject w/CLAD credential from CSUEB. I joined Kolb two years ago, after teaching for eleven years in the Fremont Unified School District. This will be year thirteen for me teaching third grade--clearly it's my favorite!
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy cooking (and eating!), reading, running, bikram yoga, theater, beach days, watching professional sports, and spending time with my family. My husband, Jason, and I have two little ones, Avery and Colvin, who keep us pretty busy!
I am confident that your child will love third grade just as much as I do! Here's to a positive and productive school year!
