Starene Cruse


I grew up in Southern California: loving the beach, surfing, hiking, biking, running, swimming, playing piano, dancing, singing, basketball, sports, and gardening. My greatest accomplishments are: marrying my best friend, raising a combined family of 7 children, and becoming a teacher! I have worked in education for over 20 years, in many different areas. I went to Pasadena City College for approx. 13+ years while raising my family and working. I then went to Azusa Pacific University and got my Teaching Degree, and Master in Education. I love to teach; I love the adventure of everyday; I love learning new things from my students and families. I love the Hamilton Family!

Interesting facts: I love dogs and have had many in my life, right now we have two little ones and my husband has taught them some fine tricks. We also rescued red head Amazon parrots and saved over 20!
