About Mrs. Chaddock

Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Laurie Chaddock, and this will be my eleventh year teaching at Ambuehl.  Teaching is my passion. I received my Bachelor's in Political Science and teaching credential from UC Irvine.I attended Pepperdine University and lived in Heidelberg, Germany for over a year while enrolled at Pepperdine's Malibu campus. I have been teaching at the elementary school level for over 26 years, including the last 20 years teaching kindergarten through fifth grade in the Capistrano Unified School District.

I enjoy the ocean, traveling, and reading.  This year my husband and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary. We have three daughters who keep us busy.  Our oldest graduated from Brown University in 2011 and is currently a school psychologist for the Yorba Linda/Placentia USD.  Our middle daughter graduated from UC San Diego in 2014 and is a software engineer at Dreamworks and our youngest is a 10th grader at Dana Hills High School.

I look forward to meeting another great group of  5th graders at Ambuehl Elementary School this fall.  It's going to be a great year!
