About Ms. Guevara

Some quotes I'd like to share:

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 math/Algebra, 2 years 6th grade Core, and 3 years teaching 8th grade US History at CWMS.   I am extremely excited to be teaching 8th graders again as they continue their middle school journey here at CWMS and prepare for high school.  


Personal Bio:

I grew up in Chicago and moved to the Bay Area in high school and haven't left yet--college at CAL, then grad school there too, and now I live here with my family.  I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, traveling, playing tennis, and spending time with friends and family. Weekends and breaks, I enjoy tennis, hiking, gatherings with friends and family, exploring the Bay Area, and watching various sporting events-- youth, college and professional.  Go Bears!  Go Dubs! Go A's! Go Raiders! I've been married for over 26 years to my wonderful husband Rick and we have two fantastic children. Selina is in the "real world" working as a TV reporter in South Bend, IN and Rico attends USD as a freshman studying business.  I am elated to be teaching 8th grade US History again this year.
