 Getting To Know Miss Cantu      

 My name is Panchita Cantu and I am very excited to be your child’s first grade teacher this year! I am looking forward to an amazing year of growth and learning together. I wanted to take a moment and share a little bit of information about myself.
I am a graduate of Cal State San Marcos. I studied education and received both my bachelor’s degree and teaching credential through their fabulous education program. This will be my fifth year teaching at San Elijo Elementary School and I am incredibly blessed to be able to work at such a wonderful school. I am truly honored to be on this educational journey with your child, and I know that together we will make this an unforgettable year!

 I was born and raised in San Diego and have been living in the north county area all of my life. When I’m not working, I enjoy going to dinner with friends and family, spending time at the beach, and reading a good book or watching a good movie. 

 Again, I am looking forward to a fabulous year together. I know it will be filled with wonderful memories. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call me. My goal for the students in my class is that each of them feels loved and nurtured while they are a part of the SEES family.
