Ms. Rieger's Biography

Hi!  My name is Annette Rieger and I am so happy to be a teacher at Sequoia Elementary School.  I have been an educator in the San Diego Unified School District for the past 21 years and I've worked at lots of different schools, including elementary, middle and high school.
I was born and raised here in San Diego and graduated from San Diego High School.  I attended San Diego State University and graduated with a degree in Liberal Studies and also earned a teaching credential.  A few years later I received a Maters Degree in Educational Administration.
I have always wanted to be a teacher and I enjoy my work very much.  I enjoy seeing students light up with the joy of learning something new.
My family, including my mom and dad, and brother live in San Diego and we visit often.  I live with my shih tzu, Mickey.  He is a therapy dog and I am very proud of him.  We enjoy visiting hospitals and convalescent centers to comfort and provide cheer to those that may be ill or away from home.
