5th Grade- Mrs. Orejel
If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning.

Mrs. Orejel…

I am a mother, wife, and only child. My husband, Israel Orejel and I have  two daughters, Isabel Mia and Ivie Rose. You’ll see them both at Solorio! I am very positive minded, joyful, and blessed. I love life and believe that a positive growth mindset leads to a better outcome.


I started at Solorio back in the 2002-2003 school year. I’ve taught 1st-5th grade. I received my B.A. and teaching credential at UC Riverside and my masters degree at University of La Verne. I am currently working towards my doctorate at ULV.

Some of my favorite things…

Shapes: hearts, polka dots, & stripes

Treats: organic chocolate, and organic chocolate covered nuts/fruit, gluten-free baked goods like Panera’s Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Cookie, organic lime tortilla chips, organic popcorn

Drink: organic coffee and organic tea, hot or iced!

Soda: S. Pellegrino or Perrier sparkling water (I don’t really do sugary drinks)

Food: Panera, Chipotle, MOD Pizza, but nothing compares to my mom’s home cooking! (I live an organic gluten-free lifestyle for my health. I am beating cancer one day at a time and I am six years strong! Victory is mine!)
