Ms. Bullicer, Len
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year as Sea Stars!
Hello, my name is Ms. Irelene Bullicer and I am thrilled to be your child’s kindergarten/first grade teacher! This will be my 8th year as a proud University Preparation Charter School (UPCS) teacher, but my 10th year in the field of education. Prior to working for UPCS, I worked as a paraeducator for the Ventura Unified School District; my position consisted of being a teacher’s aide and support staff for students with special needs. My desire to work with children flourished from that point on going forward!
I fell in love with UPCS during my residency year with California State University of Channel Islands as a kindergarten/first grade student teacher for a year and as a partner teacher in the same classroom for an additional year. I continued on as a second/third grade dual English teacher for 4 years at UPCS; every second was cherished with the children and their families! Learning and growing in the profession of education was a personal desire; hence, leading me to receive a Masters of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction through Grand Canyon University of Arizona in 2017.
This school year has led me back into the world of our Early Years (EY) students! Your child will have many opportunities to work with other teachers from the EY team, but specifically with Mrs. Vigil and Mrs. King for science, social studies, art and other enriching subjects! Mrs. Yahr will instruct our first grade Sea Stars in mathematics. I welcome all of you to join us in an adventure of experiencing a fulfilling year of academics, socializing, and exploring through learning.
