Mrs. Tanya Faustino
I have been teaching since 1997 in grades three through six. In 2006, I was fortunate enough to be hired here at Bennett Valley School District, which is where I went to school when I was young. While the physical structure of the school has changed quite a bit since I was a student here, the high quality educational experience has stayed the same. After graduating from Montgomery High School, I attended UC Davis for my undergraduate studies and University of San Diego for my teaching credential.
Even though I have taught many grade levels, third graders have a special place in my heart. I love their curiosity, enthusiasm, and humor. Every year I look forward to establishing a community here in Room 23 where the students and I can learn and grow together.
I am a strong believer in the "parent-child-teacher" team, and I feel this team is essential for children to receive the most out of their educational experience. Good communication with all team members is necessary. I will be sending home weekly emails with important information, dates, and upcoming events. Almost all correspondence will be through email unless you do not have access to the internet. If this is the case, please let me know and I will send home a paper copy of my email correspondence.
I look forward to a great year!
