I’m the director and the principle at St. Mary School. I have been with the school from the very first day and even during the period of the establishment. I believe that St. Mary School offers more than quality education; we offer a service for the families and their children by representing a lively Christian life through a Christian center education. I personally attend to each family myself to make sure that they receiving the full attention from the school. As a principal I make sure that we hire the best teachers and that our teachers are providing the best education for our students. Because we are a private Christian school, we get to choose our curriculum and I personally participate in this process. I want also to assure you that we keep a very safe environment for our students and we are daily improving our school. We always pray for the families and the children and we do everything we can to help grow in the Lord.

I have my bachelor’s degree in liberal studies and a multiple subject teaching credential. My love for children is what made me choose to become a teacher. In my classroom, I focus on developing students academically and socially. I maintain excellent classroom management skills and an ability to keep students on task. At St. Mary School, I have the privilege of giving my students the individual attention they need because of the small class size.

Ms. Maral

My name is Maral. I have a Bachelor’s degree and currently studying for a Masters of Arts in Teaching and a Multiple-Subject Teaching Credential. I have two daughters and truly enjoy working with children because they have such a wonderful sense of curiosity.I believe the role of an effective teacher is greater than simply presenting information to a passive group of students. I believe that it is the teacher’s responsibility to plant seeds of curiosity in students’ minds and give them the tools to water those seeds. Every year, I want to see each of my students develop a true desire to actively seek knowledge. Therefore, in my classroom, lessons are geared toward higher critical thinking skills and the children are taught to think “outside the box.” I make every effort to create stimulating hands-on activities, where my students have the opportunity to manipulate objects, interact with one another and to work cooperatively.

Ms. Lincoln

This will be my first year teaching at St. Mary’s School as the 5th grade teacher. I am elated to announce that this year marks my thirteenth year in the field of education. I have recently graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a Masters of Arts degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Literacy, as well as converting my preliminary teaching credential into a Cleared Multiple-subject Credential. In my classroom I stress the importance of working together as a team, being responsible, taking pride in your work and to always strive for excellence! Moreover, it is my personal goal to display the love, joy and dedication I have for the art of learning/teaching to my students’. I truly believe we will have an outstanding time learning and discovering remarkable things!

I am the Kindergarten teacher. I have been a teacher for over 15 years. In my classroom, I focus on conceptual development, reading and language skills, math, spiritual/social/emotional development and fine motor skills. I modify my instructions to suite the ability of the children. And in my parents-teacher conferences, I make sure that the parent understand the goals of my classroom in the next period because I believe in the home-school cooperation.
