Welcome to T.K. in Room 14!


My name is Tricia Waterloo and I love T.K.!  This is my 21st year teaching in Santa Clara Unified! I grew up in Washington, went to college in Montana, and now live in Morgan Hill. My husband and I have a sweet seven year old named Kai and two dogs that keep us busy.


Transitional Kindergarten is a wonderful program where we will learn our academic and social standards while having fun!
