Mrs. Arnold’s Third Grade Class Is Riding the Wave of Success

Mrs. Sue Arnold has been the Third Grade teacher at Holy Family School for 24 years.  She is a graduate of Cal Poly Pomona and did her credential work at Cal State Los Angeles.  Prior to becoming the third grade teacher, she worked as an instructional aide for three years at the school.  She has also taught middle school math to Dolores Mission and Holy Family students in the Bridges summer school program.  She believes in a Catholic education and loves both the parish and school community.

She has been a parishioner for over 40 years and was married to her husband, Ernie, a Holy Family School graduate, over 40 years ago at Holy Family Church.  They have 3 sons who are also alumni of Holy Family School and Saint Francis High School.  Recently, her family has expanded to include 2 granddaughters and a grandson.  Mrs. Arnold loves being with her family, reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, swimming, and traveling across the U.S. (having visited almost all 50 states and many of the National Parks).

Mrs. Dorelli Gorcica is starting her third year as the teacher aide in 3rd grade.  She has previously been an aide at St. Rita School.  She has a son entering 7th grade and a daughter starting her senior year at Mayfield.

Mrs. Arnold wants her students to know that she loved being in the Third Grade as a child and would be happy being a “third grader” forever.  She hopes to instill her love of learning in her students and also hopes to continue to learn from them.

“Always remember the fun we had learning together.”
