About Me

 

My name is Christy Delaney, and I have loved being an educator for the past seventeen years. This is my thirteenth year teaching at Andersen Elementary! Time sure flies when you're having fun! I have taught grades 2-5 during my tenure at Andersen.

I attended Azusa Pacific University and graduated with a BFA in 1992.  This led to me to the path of teaching, as I went on to earn both a single subject secondary teaching credential in fine art, followed by an elementary multiple subject credential. In 2007, I graduated with a masters degree in education.

Very shortly after graduating with my MA, my husband, Michael and I welcomed our first daughter into our lives. She is now 11 years old and our youngest is 6. They will be at the same elementary school this year as a sixth grader and kindergartner. As a family, we have a busy schedule filled with soccer, dance, Daisy's and small group. When I have some free time, I enjoy reading, collecting new ideas on Pinterest, visiting family, going to vintage swap meets,  and getting outdoors to enjoy beautiful Orange County.

I am looking forward to another great school year!

A Little Reminder About Deliveries to School

Please do not bring your child's school work up to the office after school has begun, as it will not be accepted as being on time. It is important that students this age start learning responsibility, making sure that planners, homework, etc. are packed up before bedtime and ready to go for the following day, of course, with parents' help. It's O.K. for students to experience both simple consequences and rewards for bringing in or forgetting work. This is a great year of growth for students of this age, so thank you for helping us with this.

Forgotten lunches and other deliveries during school hours must be left in the school office. Classrooms will not be interrupted to announce the arrival of a lunch or other items. For the delivery of birthday treats, please talk to your child’s teacher prior to the date and deliver the treats five minutes before the end of the school day.  Parents please meet your child's class at the lunch tables and pass out treats outside while the class sings “Happy Birthday.”  Of course healthy treats are strongly encouraged.

Other Spelling Homework Ideas 

Each night as part of your homework you are to practice your spelling words. Here are some fun and different ways to practice your words other than spellingcity. 

  • Write your words in order from the shortest to the longest. Paint your words with water and a paint brush on the sidewalk. 
  • Write your words with a crayon or marker. Try changing colors for vowels or word endings. 
  • Take a practice test to see which words you still need to practice. 
  • Type your words on the computer. 
  • Write your words in the air and say the letters at the same time. 
  • Write each word as many times as there are letters in the word. 
  • Take a stick and spell each word in the sand or dirt. 
  • Rainbow write your words using crayons or colored pencils. Trace over each word with one color. Then write it again with a different color. Do this with three different colors. 
  • Write your words on someone's back. 
  • Write only the words you missed on a practice test three times each. 
  • Write your spelling words in a sentence. 
  • Spell your words orally while you are in the car. 
  • Use a white board to write your words. 
  • Play a game of hangman using spelling words.
