1st Grade Teacher

Ms. Anita Buckner

After earning a teaching credential and a master's degree in Early Childhood Education from Sonoma State University, I began my career as a kindergarten teacher in Novato 1987. I taught first and fifth grades before moving to Dunham in 2001.  I taught third grade until returning to first grade in 2008.

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, gardening, and playing volleyball, as well as rowing crew with the North Bay Rowing Club on the Petaluma River. I'm enjoying watching my two sons growing into fine young men, and I have two dogs who are always ready for a walk on the beach.

Special Instructions:


This year we are asking every student to come to school with some basic supplies that they will use in their class. The list below is unique for your 1st Grader.   

Many stores are having great sales for school supplies right now and, while it is not mandatory that you purchase these items, we hope that you will keep this list handy as you do your back-to-school shopping.

Also, if your family is in the position to purchase a second set for another student in your child’s class, we would very much appreciate your help. 

Thank you!!
