Welcome & Classroom Information

  • Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! I'm Kayla Hocking (Ms. Kayla).  I'm the teacher for the 4 year old visually structured preschool class. We also have two instructional assistants in our class, Ms. Julie and Ms. Camille. Our Speech and Language Pathologist is Ms. Dawn, and our Occupational Therapist is Ms. Frances. Even though school looks different this year, we are all looking forward to a great school year with you and your students! 


    Teacher Background

    This is my tenth year teaching in Pleasant Valley School District, and my ninth year teaching preschool here. I grew up in Lancaster, California, but moved to Ventura County for college. I earned my Bachelors and my Special Education teaching credential at CSU Channel Islands, and loved this area so much that I decided to stay! Since college, I have also earned a credential for Language and Academic Development, and an authorization for Early Childhood Education, both at Ventura County Office of Education. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my two young daughters!
