Welcome to Second Grade!

My name is Brittany Buchel and I am so happy to be your child's second grade teacher. I can hardly wait to meet everyone! 

I wanted to answer a few questions before the year begins so we can all start to get to know each other.

How do you pronounce your last name?

Buchel is pronounced boo-SHELL. I tell students to remember “boo” like a ghost and “shell” like a seashell.

What is your teaching experience?

I taught kindergarten in north county San Diego and computer classes in Benicia. At Springhill, I taught kindergarten from 2012-2013 and have been teaching second grade since 2013. 

What are your hobbies?

I love traveling the world and spending time in nature with my family. We love to hike, backpack, and camp on the coast and in the mountains. I also love to sew, quilt, and read.           

Do you have any pets?

We have three cats. Stripes is our very spirited black and white tuxedo kitty, Apollo is a sweet little brown tabby, and Tipper is our huge, fluffy scaredy-cat.

What's the best way to communicate with you?

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. The best way to contact me is through my school's email: bbuchel (@)   Throughout the year I will keep in touch through notes, telephone calls, weekly newsletters, emails, and parent-teacher conferences.

I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with you and your child!
