Degrees and Certifications:
I’m so happy to be a part of a wonderful and caring community. Thank you for welcoming me as a new teacher here at San Pasqual K-8 School. For those of you who I have not met, my name is Amanda Narez. I attended California State University San Marcos, majoring in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Literacy. I am originally from a small town in Northern California, called Hollister. I have an older brother and sister. Being an auntie of 6 keeps me busy and remembering how fun it is to play and laugh! I don’t have kiddos of my own yet- but cannot wait to have children and a family someday. I love cooking, being outdoors, music, traveling, spending time with family & friends and animals.
I have been a teacher in San Diego Unified for 6 years, mostly grades K-2 and was a Reading support teacher for K-3rd grade as well. I enjoy teaching all subjects, but I love to teach reading, writing and Science- they are my favorite! During my summers and weekends I coach soccer for ages 2-7, and work at SeaWorld in their education and animal departments.
I truly believe that children can love learning and achieve their learning goals in the classroom - given high expectations, support, encouragement and an engaging learning environment. I hope your child feels happy, safe and excited to learn each and every day!
Thank you for all of your support and involvement. I look forward to working with all of you!
