“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest” – Benjamin Franklin
Hello! My name is Elizabeth Romero and I am thrilled to be teaching third grade at Mary Immaculate School. I am thankful to be part of such an inclusive and active community. Through my own experiences and relationships, MI is a wonderful place to teach and learn alike. It is extremely gratifying to be a teacher and do what I love on a daily basis. I strive to create a caring, safe, and engaging learning environment to encourage students to believe in themselves and do their personal best.
Having grown up in the San Fernando Valley, I feel that my personal connection with the surrounding community enables me to be a better teacher for my students. I graduated from the University of Phoenix with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business. I began teaching in 2005 and have been at Mary Immaculate since 2016.
I enjoy teaching because of the chance to impact young lives by building sincere relationships with students and their families. I feel truly blessed to be able to practice my faith in a meaningful way on a daily basis and I especially value the sense of community that comes from teaching at a Catholic school. Together with the students and their families, we collaborate to develop a strong rapport of trust and understanding while working as a team.
As this school year begins, I am motivated to enhance the lives of my students. I strive to help them grow as kind people and to prepare them for academic excellence. My primary objective is to inspire a love of learning, where personal and spiritual growth is fostered and encouraged. I am hopeful that our community of students, parents, and faculty will continue to evolve in love, dignity, and respect for one another. I look forward with enthusiasm to working with my students, parents, colleagues, and staff towards making a fundamental difference! I truly believe that what a child receives inside the classroom projects outward towards us all. It is our duty as educators, role models, and leaders to develop our youth and make them strong, positive contributors to society. Always keeping in mind, Faith, Excellence, and Stewardship.
