Mrs. Troughton

          I am happy to be teaching TK at Federal Terrace Elementary. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, and TK since 2010, in both private school and public school. Teaching is a wonderful second career for me. I worked in private industry and banking for 33 years, having received my BS from University of California, Berkeley. I received my multiple subject teaching credential from Touro University in 2010.


          Having been born and raised in Idaho, I moved to California to continue my education and make a career. My husband, Doug, and my two sons, Kenneth and Jeff, are the joy of my life. I enjoy hiking, camping, and spending time with family and friends. Bird-watching is my hobby. Throughout the year I lead birding hikes on Mare Island and have been a volunteer at Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum for a number of years.
