About Me

Hi, I'm Jean Pridgen and I have been teaching in BUSD for 18 years now.  I began my career here teaching 4th grade at DB Elementary and moved over to teach 4th grade at TP Elementary shortly after it opened up.  I made the "big leap" over to Excelsior 3 years ago (this will be my 4th year here) to teach 6th grade ELA/History.  I LOVE everything about this campus: staff, students, activities, and academics. 

I have been a DB resident for 29 years (yikes) and I have two older children who went through BUSD and Liberty Union School District and are quite successful.   (I say that because sometimes both districts get a bad rap).  My daughter, Alex and my son, Jeff graduated from San Diego State University.  My husband Dave is a retired IT guy and we just celebrated our 31st anniversary this summer.  We have two Golden Retrievers named Madison and Marley.  When I'm not working I enjoy working out at the gym, golfing, playing tennis, reading, shopping, and being with my family.

I LOVE teaching and feel very fortunate to have such a tremendous impact on a young person's life.  I don't take this responsibility lightly as you will learn.

Here's to a great 2015-2016 school year!
