Hi! My name is Andrea Sweetser. I want to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. I was born and raised here in San Diego. I love to read and play golf-even though I'm really bad at it. :)

This is my eleventh year of teaching and I bring a great deal of enthusiasm and desire in helping to teach kids. I am a mother of three great kids. Both my son and my oldest daughter graduated from NAU (Northern Arizona University).  My youngest daughter is starting her senior year at West Hills High School in Santee.  

By providing a safe, well organized, and rule structured classroom, I hope to promote an atmosphere where the students can express themselves freely and openly. This kind of environment is essential in order for learning to take place. My classroom will be a learning place for both the students and myself. As a teacher, I am only the facilitator of learning and want my classroom to reflect a positive exchange of knowledge where everyone is welcome.

O'farrell is an amazing place to work and to learn. I am fortunate to be a part of a staff that supports the learning and growth of all students at our school.
