Rose Triest-SDC 3-5
This is my first year teaching at Sequoia and second year with the Special Day Classroom (SDC). I worked closely with the previous teacher this past school year as an Mental Health Counselor. I love a good walk in nature and a home cooked meal. I am excited about working with all the new and returning students this year as we strive to create a community from afar.

I later returned to school and earned three associates degree while raising four small children. I was very motivated by the Special Education classes I took, so in 2008 I was hired as a Para-Professional for Sequoia and have been working at this school scince then. The past twelve years I have worked with a wide range of students with different needs. I am passionate about supporting students as they grow ans learn each day. I enjoy playing golf, hicking and listening to sappy love songs.
I'm a Para Educator for the Inclusion program. I've been working at Sequoia Elementary School for 7 years. Before coming to Sequoia I worked at an after school program called, Adventure Time. I enjoy cooking and making handmade jewelry.
I have been employed as a educator with OUSD for 16 years. My passion for youth stems from owning my own child care and foster home. I have a B.A in early childhood studies and a Masters Degree in Special Education. I view myself as the sun providing rays to help students thrive! My hobbies include fishing, photography and water sports.
