Mrs. Jenkins

Hello, and welcome to second grade at Mangini Ranch! My name is Tricia Jenkins and I am so excited to be your child's teacher. Here is a little bit about me.

  • I have been teaching in the district for 15 years.

  • I have a B.S. in Psychology from U.C. Berkeley and an M.S. in Counseling from San Francisco State University.

  • I have two children. My daughter is working as an ER nurse in downtown Portland. My son is majoring in film scoring at Berklee College of Music in Boston. I am super proud of my kids, but I hate living so far away from them!

  • I met my husband in the marching band at Cal. We have lived in Berkeley, Hayward, San Lorenzo, San Diego, Santee, and finally, Folsom.
    • My husband teaches Math at Ponderosa High School. We're so happy to be on similar schedules and are hoping to find more time to travel, now that we are "empty-nesters."
  • I have a pet guinea pig named Walter. He squeaks every time he hears us open the refrigerator door because he loves getting treats. He also loves to snuggle.  I hope I can bring him to school to meet everyone!
