Meet Mrs. Bader

Hi! My name is Janet Bader and I teach first grade in Room 2 at Washington School. I have been a primary grade teacher for 30 years and this is my 21st year teaching at Washington School. I grew up in Santa Monica and I earned my undergraduate degree and teaching credential at UCLA. I also have a Masters of Science in Education in Elementary Reading and Literacy. While I have been at Washington School, I have been a Redondo Beach Unified Teacher of the Year, a Los Angeles County Teacher of the Year, and a nominee for California Teacher of the Year. It was an honor to be able to represent Washington School in these programs!


One of my favorite quotes: “Teachers who love teaching, teach children to love learning!”
