Hello! My name is Kristel Kamrar and I just completed my fifth year of teaching sixth grade at Rocklin Academy. I was introduced to Rocklin Academy and the Core Knowledge curriculum in January of 2010. As a substitute I had the opportunity to get to know the amazing staff in different grade levels, as well as the Core Knowledge Sequence. I fell in love with the school quickly and have considered myself lucky to work on the 6th grade team for the past five years. Despite my love for sixth grade, I am thrilled to begin my work in a new role, the instructional math coach.

Before joining the Rocklin Academy family, I taught a year of kindergarten with the Western Placer Unified School District. I received my Bachelor’s of Arts in Liberal Studies and earned my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at California State University, Chico. During college I worked on a team of exceptionally trained math tutors who served 5 local elementary campuses, working side by side with teachers to provide support in math education for at risk students. During my time with Rocklin Academy I have been able to develop a deeper understanding of the Common Core Math Standards.

While working with the Common Core Committee, I was given the opportunity to dive into the shifts in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and explore the benefits of the new framework. Additionally, I was invited to attend PCOE math leadership workshops where I learned more about the Common Core Framework and increased my excitement about the advantages of teaching CCSS.

Currently, I live in Roseville with my husband Josh and our dogs, Karma and Kismet. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first child. She is expected to make an appearance at the end of July. Having both grown up in Roseville, Josh and I are surrounded by plenty of family and friends that we spend much of our free time with.

I look forward to working closely with all of the math teachers in the Rocklin Academy Family of Schools as well as all of the families in our community to make this year a great success for all!
