Ms. Catherine Wheelock
Hello there! My name is Catherine Wheelock and I am Rancho Rosal’s Learning Center teacher. As the Learning Center teacher dedicated to 3rd and 5th grade students, I provide resource services through specialized academic instruction both in the Learning Center and in the general education classrooms.
I graduated from CSU Channel Islands with my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I was very fortunate to spend a year student teaching at Rancho Rosal getting to know all that our school has to offer for the community. Following my student teaching I was hired on as the Makerspace teacher here at Rancho Rosal. In this dynamic teaching role I was able to work with every student on campus in a hands-on learning environment, working to build a positive, exhilarating learning attitude towards STEM education. Now, as the Upper Grade Learning Center teacher, I am very fortunate for the opportunity to combine my experience from general education and continuing collaboration with the Rancho Rosal staff to provide a supportive and individualized learning environment. I look forward to watching your child learn and grow!
Education and Certifications:
I received my Bachelors of Arts degree in Liberal Studies with a minor in Reading and Language from CSU Channel Islands. After joining the workforce in early education I decided to return to school for my teaching credential. I received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from CSU Channel Islands and I am currently enrolled in the Education Specialist Credential program there as well.
I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible. I spend the majority of my free time bicycling and camping throughout the west coast. I recently moved to Ventura County so I am greatly enjoying exploring all that this area has to offer!
