Second Grade

Teacher Annette - Sea Otter Room


 Aloha! My name is Annette McManus and I am delighted to be a 2nd Grade teacher in The Sea Otter Sanctuary.  I have been teaching for over 20 years.  My classrooms have been all over the world, from Kuwait, Bahrain, Hong Kong, Honolulu, Barcelona and Tokyo.  I earned a BA at The University of Hawaii and a Master Degree in Education at Chapman University. I have a lovely daughter, Nicole, and two brilliant twin grandchildren, Lola and Nico, They live in Barcelona. My philosophy of teaching is threading social skills and worldmindedness into our daily lessons. Good Manners Matters! I look forward to an exciting school year and will ensure my students know "that it is nice to be important, but more important to be nice".
