1st Grade Team

Meet Our 1st Grade Team!

Dianne Cahir

I am a veteran teacher who has been teaching for 26 years. I have taught both Kindergarten and First grade. I also taught and teach Yoga to the kids. We love to meditate too. 





Elaine Kaiteris

I've taught at Willard, and overall, for 19 years. The best part about teaching is seeing the children push themselves to do their best! I love gardening, playing tennis and spending time with my kids.


Penny Magalong

My name is Penny Magalong but everyone calls me Ms. Penny. I love teaching and feel very fortunate to have found teaching as my 2nd career. The thing I like best about teaching is spending my day with students and seeing their excitement and engagement with their learning! I also love seeing so many members of the Willard community doing all types of interesting projects and work around our campus. I love spending time with my family. We enjoy paddle boarding, going to Pismo Beach and attending rock concerts!
