Welcome to K-AM!
Welcome to K-AM! My name is Diane Bonetati and I am one of our Madison morning kindergarten teachers. I have been teaching for over 20 years (but I don't feel that old!) I have concentrated my teaching in the lower grades and this is my fifth year in kindergarten. I love being a part of the early learning years where you can see so much growth in the students! Their joy and enthusiasm for everything makes teaching fun! I enjoy helping new families navigate their first elementary experience so they can feel comfortable and enjoy the adventure.
There are so many things I want for my students! I want my kids to love school and learning and to take that with them for the rest of their school careers. I want them to have friends, treat others kindly, and learn how to manage their relationships with others. Finally, I want my students to be successful readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists,ecologists, citizens, critical thinkers and to be everything they are capable of!
I live in Redondo Beach with my husband, two kids and our labradoodle, Chewie. I am proud to say that my children attended Madison and are now working hard and enjoying themselves at Adam's Middle School. I enjoy relaxing with my family, walking Chewie around the neighborhood, reading in my backyard, and experimenting in the garden!
