Second Grade Teacher
“Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring change. Learning is more than absorbing facts, it is acquiring understanding.”
– William Arthur Ward
One of the most profound ways we encounter Jesus Christ is in the Sacraments. Second grade is an important year because the students will receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Eucharist. They will grow in Spiritual Faith and formation. I have taught Religious Education for over 20 years in preparing students to receive both the Sacrament of Reconciliation and the Sacrament of the Eucharist. I have taught students in fifth grade and I am happy to be teaching at Mary Immaculate School as the second grade teacher. As an educator I want to motivate, engage, challenge, encourage students’ to be innovative learners, and to foster 21st Century learning skills for academic success. I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Liberal Studies and a Bachelor’s in Chicana/o Studies from California State University, Northridge. I also received my Multiple Credential and Clear Credential from CSUN.
