Hello, my name is Kristin Loaiza and I am so excited to be joining the Rocklin Academy Gateway team as a 1st grade teacher.

I have lived in the Sacramento area for over 30 years and love being in Northern California.  My amazing family consists of my husband, our two boys, two dogs, and one guinea pig-it is a busy and active household, which we love.  I love spending time in the outdoors camping and hiking with family and friends as well as attending our son's baseball and soccer games.  I also enjoy reading, sewing, and crafting with my Cricut.  

I earned my Bachelors of Science at UC Davis and my teaching credential at National University.  I have had the opportunity to teach in second, fifth, sixth, and seventh grade.  I also had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer in both of my sons’ classes as an art docent for kindergarten through fifth grades.  I am committed to making sure each of my students succeed in a nurturing classroom environment.  I look forward to working with you as a team to support and inspire your students to exceed their goals and have an amazing first grade experience this year!
