Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! My name is Christa Hoot and I have the extreme pleasure of teaching our school’s youngest learners. It is my hope that all students in Room K2 develop a love for school and learning. Students will be exposed to strong academics, in a safe and engaging environment. Kindness and laughter will fill our classroom community.
Room K2 has been designated as a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) classroom. This past summer our classroom received a facelift. Students will now learn in a freshly painted room with flexible seating and desks with whiteboard tops.
A little about me…
In addition to my bachelor’s degree and teaching credential, I received my master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and have my GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) certification.
This year I have chosen to job share in order to spend more time with my daughter, Kenlee, who will be one on October 1st. A few of my favorite things include: hiking with my 2 labrador retrievers, going to Disneyland, Pilates, traveling, listening to music with my husband Tom and spending time outdoors with Kenlee.
I am so excited for this school year and am honored to be one of your child’s teachers. Go Cubberley Cougars!

Hi, my name is Lyna Rawlings and I look forward to doing a job share with Mrs. Hoot in Room K2. We have been friends for about 11 years now and we are excited about working together. Teaching Kindergarten is a passion of mine. I believe that it is very important to set a strong foundation for our little ones.
I started Kindergarten here in San Diego and graduated from San Diego State University with my Teaching Credential and bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies, with a specialization in Human Development.
During my free time, I enjoy going to the movies, beach, park, painting, and spending time with my husband and two little dogs named Coconut and Hazelnut. I also love to travel. I have been to many places around the world including Europe, Asia, Australia, and Mexico. I like to share my experiences and knowledge with my students. I look forward to being your child's teacher and I can't wait to get to know all of our students in Room K2.
