My name is Patricia Edlund. I grew up in Southern California and moved to Auburn six years ago with my husband and two children. I attended Loyola Marymount University for both my undergraduate degree and my credential program. I have seventeen years of teaching experience. I have taught for fourteen years as a high school English teacher in Southern California and really enjoy turning kids into life-long readers and writers! I was nominated and selected as one of Orange County’s Teachers of the Year in 2006. It was quite an honor to be nominated by my colleagues and selected as one of the top 15 finalists. In 2008, I decided to take some time off and stay at home with my two young children.
After moving to Auburn in 2010, I decided to go back into the classroom! I taught for two years at Calvary Chapel Christian School where my kids were attending school. Last year, I worked for a charter school in Rocklin helping at risk youth. I am VERY excited to be at Colfax Elementary and I look forward to working with such bright and eager learners!
I enjoy spending time with my family as well as cooking and entertaining friends and family. I am looking forward to making the remainder of the year fantastic!
