Is our Principal, Primary Teacher (Tuesday/Thursday) and the kids’ go teacher to help in any of their needs from the phonetic alphabet to the best way to get along with your peers at school Mrs. Bardin is the helper for all.

I fell in love with teaching children when I had children of my own. My bachelor’s in Child Development gave me the knowledge and tools to properly guide children and support and strengthen their natural intrinsic drive to learn. I continued in my education by obtaining a teaching credential: K-8th, and a credential and masters in Educational Leadership. My teaching experience of twenty years is comprised of all ages from preschool to high school. For two years, I was teacher-in-charge at a K-8th elementary school, taught all the grades K-12th, substitute taught in the high schools and special education classes, been a mentor teacher in preschool, a lead teacher in an after school program.  Before entering the teaching profession, I was a bookkeeper/secretary for five years. All these experiences and training has prepared me for the wonderful job of being the principal and teacher at Almondale Academy. – Mrs. Bardin.
