Mrs. Devaney's Star Scholars

Welcome to Mrs. Devaney's First/Second Grade classroom.  In our room, we are striving to become life-long learners, problem solvers, and citizens making this world a better place.  All aspects of a student are important to me, so I make sure to include physical education, music  and art into the curriculum.This will be my 29th year of teaching and I continue to love what I do.

About your teacher...

  My husband and I have been happily teaching in Capistrano Unified for over 26 years.  Our two sons went to Ambuehl and are   CUSD graduates!  My favorite place to be is the beach playing volleyball.  I am an avid reader and life long learner!  When I first began teaching I was a 5th grade teacher.  Then I moved to 4th grade for 8 years.  As my own children were learning language and beginning to read, I became fascinated with the process so I decided to move to first grade.  My favorite subjects to teach are reading, math, and science.  My motto:  Do what you can to make this world a better place!
