Meet the Teacher

Meet Ms. Najar

Hello! My name is Nicole Najar and I am Kindergarten & 1st Grade Teacher at Chet F. Harritt STEAM School!

I grew up in Palm Springs, California where it is very hot in the summer,just like Santee. I graduated from San Diego State with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and a minor in Child and Family Development. I began working in the Santee School District in 2007 and have been here ever since! I have had experience teaching primary thru intermediate age students. This will be my fourth year at Chet and I love working with the students and families here.

Some of my hobbies include, traveling, hiking, and spending time with my family and friends. I have many friends whom I have known since I was in elementary school. On weekends, you might find me hiking nat Mission Trails or running at Lake Murray.

I look forward to working with you this year!

Here is a picture of me hiking Cowles Mtn.

I love my job! I am so lucky to be able to have the opportunity to inspire young learners each day to wonder and explore concepts!
