• Meet the Teacher:


    Hello!  My name is Mrs. Dean and I teach first grade at Joli Ann Leichtag Elementary.  I graduated from California State University San Marcos in 2009 where I also received my teaching credential.  Since graduating, I have taught in kindergarten, first grade, and as a reading specialist in the San Marcos Unified School District.  I am so excited to continue teaching 1st grade.  You will see so much growth in your child this year, and with your help, I promise to help them become successful students in school and in life.

    A little about my family- I grew up in Ramona with my parents and 2 siblings.  Ramona High School is where I met my husband Erik and married later in 2008. He currently serves in the Navy.  In 2011 we bought our forever home in San Marcos.  We have one amazing son, Jeffrey who is 3 years old, and a Dachshund named Trigger.  I absolutely love Disney, chocolate, and spending time with my family.
