Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Arlene Stoumen

Welcome to first grade! I have been teaching in the Bennett Valley school district since 2012. I have taught grades k-2nd and 4th grade at Strawberry. I was born and raised in Santa Rosa, although I did manage to make it out for some time in my college years. I grew up playing soccer since the age of 3 and went on to play Division I college soccer at UC Davis. I also received my MA degree in Education & teaching certificate from UC Davis as well.

I am very dedicated to my profession and strive to teach my students how to work through challenges and consistently reach their goals. Outside of the classroom, I have four young kids who keep me busy and constantly on my toes! If I can manage to carve out a little time for myself, I will always jump at the chance to take an Orangetheory class. I am looking forward to meeting your children and having a great year in first grade!
