About Ms. Guevara
Some quotes I'd like to share:
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. Nelson Mandela

My Education and Teaching Experience:
UC Berkeley, BA in Social Science.
UC Berkeley Graduate School of Education, Multiple Subject Professional Clear Teaching Credential with Social Science Supplemental Authorization; General Math Emergency Credential, CA Dept. of Education.
I have been teaching students since 1989, with a few years break when I stayed home with my own children. I have experience working with most elementary grades (K, 3, 4, 5, and 6) as well as all middle school grades including 6th grade as a core/self contained classroom teacher, 7th and 8th grade as a Title One Reading teacher, plus 7th and 8th grade as a math teacher here at CWMS. This is my third year teaching 8th grade US History at CWMS. I love teaching and sharing our nation's past with our nation's future.
I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, traveling, playing tennis, spending time with friends and family plus all things CAL. Go Bears! Weekends and breaks, I enjoy watching various sporting events-- youth, college and professional. I've been married for over 22 years to my husband Rick and we have two fantastic teenagers-Selina and Rico. Selina is a sophomore at Elon University in NC and Rico is a sophomore at SRVHS. I am elated to be back at CWMS and teaching US History again this year.
