My name is Joanna Hartman and I am so excited to teach Kindergarten at West Hollywood Elementary School! From the first time I walked on the campus, I knew that I wanted to be a part of this school. I have taught Kindergarten in both South Korea and Czech Republic, and feel more than ready to teach in my own city. I was born on the Westside and there is no place in the world I'd rather be. I recently received my credential from Cal State LA, and am currently going for my Master's Degree in Reading Education. I am a member of Kappa Delta Pi honor society and the International Literacy Association. Above all, I am a teacher who learns: about my students, with my students, for my students, and from my students.
