Mrs. Estep

     Hello and welcome to Etiwanda Colony Kindergarten! I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year. My name is Krista Estep and I have been teaching for 18 years in the Etiwanda School District. I taught 2nd grade for 17 years and now I am beyond excited to be making the transition to kindergarten this year!! Kindergarten is a grade I've always wanted to teach!!  I began my career at East Heritage Elementary in 2002, and then happily made the transition to open Etiwanda Colony in 2004. Wow! Where does the time go? :0)

    I attended California State University San Bernardino 
where I received a Bachelors Degree in Education. After 
graduating, I continued on to Chapman University where 
I received my teaching credential and my Master's Degree 
in teaching.
  
    I have been married 19 years this month.  My husband 
and I have been blessed with 3 wonderful daughters, which 
I'm sure you will hear a lot about throughout the school year.
Our oldest daughter, Madison, will  be 14 in October and is in
9th grade this year at Los Osos.  Our middle daughter, 
Makenna, just turned 12 in July and is starting 7th grade at 
Day Creek. Our youngest daughter, Makinley, just turned 5 in 
June and is starting kindergarten here at Colony! My girls are 
sweet, fun, and full of energy. My older two play travel softball
so much of my free time is spent driving the girls to practice and 
watching them play softball. I'm a busy mommy, but love every 
second I get to spend with them. I'm learning quickly how fast 
they grow up. Enjoy every second with your precious babies. 

     I can't wait to meet our new CUBS!!  I look forward to 
an AWESOME year with your child!
   
Sincerely, 
Mrs. Krista Estep
