Welcome to First Grade! My name is Ms. Verbeke and this is my second year teaching first grade at SNACS. I grew up in Michigan and moved to California 12 years ago. I graduated from UC Irvine and have performed at Disneyland Resort for a number of years. I’ve also performed with Disney Cruise Line sailing onboard with people from all over the world.

I love to travel, sing and dance, and spend time outdoors hiking, swimming, snowboarding, and skiing! I can’t wait to get to know you and see what adventures this year has for us as a classroom family!
