Hello! My name is Andrea Carlini, and I am thrilled to be here at Mountain View Elementary! I am the new social emotional learning specialist. My experience is both in education and mental health. I have a Master’s degree in psychology, and I have worked at multiple behavioral health centers serving youth. I have eight years of combined experience teaching middle school language arts, social studies, and special education. My philosophy surrounding education is a holistic approach. I believe that students whose physical and emotional needs are met will naturally develop curiosity and a love of learning. Therefore, I wholeheartedly believe it is essential to teach social and emotional skills within the classroom.
Originally from Wisconsin, I love the Packers! I enjoy zumba, baking, reading, and walks with my family. At home I have a three year old daughter, Vivien, who keeps me active and on my toes, and a husband who also keeps me on my toes!
I’m truly looking forward to this year and to being a part of the Mountain View community, as I know it will be incredible-full of memories, friendships, laughter, and learning! GO BIGHORNS!
