Ms. Labonte was born in Indiana but says her family moved frequently as she was growing up because her father was in the military. “Most of my schooling was in Washington state,” she said. She attended Eastern Washington University, where she majored in Reading with a minor in Early Childhood Education. “I wanted to be a nurse when I first started college but later changed my major to Education after tutoring a group of fourth graders,” said Ms. Labonte. When she moved to California, she attended Cal State University, San Bernardino where she received her Master’s in Educational Administration.
Her entire teaching career has been here in Fontana. She started in 1995 as a fourth grade teacher and has taught second through fifth grade, with most of her years in fourth and fifth grade.
