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 three years ago, after teaching for eleven years in the Fremont Unified School District. Although I've spent the last thirteen years teaching third grade, I'm really excited to be teaching fifth grade this year!
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy cooking (and eating!), reading, running, 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 our classroom just as much as I do! Here's to a positive and productive school year!
