Mrs. Ann Thorpe
Hello Mariposa Students,
My name is Mrs. Thorpe and this will be my 22nd year teaching at Mariposa since September of 1997. Eighteen of those years have been in third grade. I have been teaching for a total of 31 years, nine of those at Whittier City School District. I love learning along with my students especially participating together with my students filling out forms for the Reading Marathon in December to March.
I received my undergraduate degree, Bachelor of Science from Whittier College. Cal State Fullerton is where I studied to be a teacher and receive a Master's degree in Education in 1993.
I have been married for twenty-four years and have one son. I come from a very large family all who live within a distance of 35 miles. My son is an animal lover especially of reptiles of which he has four somewhat exotic creatures that share our backyard. There is also Goldie our pet lab who just turned 12, I think!
I am looking forward to meeting you on the first day of school. Welcome to Mariposa new students. See you on Monday, August 27th.
