Emily Restemayer and Kelsey Aylor

Welcome to Kindergarten!

I am Emily Restemayer and this is my 16th year teaching in Etiwanda. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades. I got my BA at Cal Poly Pomona and my credential and Masters at Azusa Pacific University. I job share with my sister Mrs. Aylor. We will both be your child's teacher this year. Mrs. Aylor will teach on Mondays and Tuesdays. I will teach on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We will alternate teaching every other Friday. Make sure when you are communicating with us, you include us both so we can all stay on the same page. I am so excited to meet your child and spend the year together learning and having fun!
