Miss Tori Anklam Tori!



Miss Anklam comes to Calvary by way of Calvary...


Yes...she is a former student and a very happy alumnus to be able to work at her favorite school. By the way, I believe that she was the Chapel Buddy of one of our present eighth grade students. Miss Anklam is a graduate of Chabot College. We are very happy to have her join us in the Preschool classroom with Mrs. Vincent and Mrs. Traci.


Tori loves watching movies and TV. Her favorite movie is Wedding Crashers, and her favorite TV show is 'Friends.' Her most beloved vacation spot to go is Disneyland; she is a kid a heart. She enjoys hanging out with her friends; driving around and singing in her car with them.
