Hello, my name is Catherine Niedzwiecki, and I am extremely excited to continue being a part of the Rocklin Academy community for another year! I think fifth graders are AMAZING! Fifth grade is a remarkable year where students truly begin taking responsibility for their own learning. I look forward to helping each student become a superstar this year!
This will be my sixth year living in the Rocklin area and working at Rocklin Academy Gateway. I moved in the summer of 2014 with my husband from the Bay Area. Since living in the area we expanded our family welcoming our daughter in January of 2016. As a family, we love exploring our community and going on adventures.
I graduated from CSU, Chico, with a BA in liberal studies, and I received my teaching credential from CSU, East Bay. I have been teaching for the last 11 years in grades 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
I KNOW that every student has the ability to learn and be highly successful. In my classroom, I create a safe learning environment where students have fun learning, and love being challenged too. Together, we build a strong learning community that includes students and their families, inside and outside the classroom. I look forward to another great year!
