My name is Doris Schaffer and I have been teaching in the Culver City Unified School District since 1989. Prior to that I taught in Long Beach, Earlimart, and San Diego for 5 years. I have classroom experience teaching Kindergarten through the 6th grade including English as a second language. I am also a Cotsen Math Fellow. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts and a Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy.
The students in my class visit the computer lab and school library every week. Students also have a bimonthly art class, taught by a specialist, and attend Makerspace Science and Engineering classes twice a month. Physical Education is taught daily by a certified P.E. teacher.
I strive to build an educational environment that supports every student in my class and provides them with the opportunity to develop the foundation they need in order to reach their full potential.
