Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Mrs. Alvarado and I am a third grade teacher! This will be my 2nd year teaching third grade and my 6th year at Victoria Groves. I have been with the Alta Loma School District for a total of 8 years. Over four years ago, I was the computer teacher at Victoria Groves, which is when I fell in love with this school and community. I really enjoyed teaching third grade last year, and can’t wait to start another adventure with a new group of smiling faces.
I decided to become a teacher because I love to work with students and create fun new ways to teach different subjects. I went to Cal Poly Pomona to earn my multiple subject credential and master’s degree in Educational Multimedia. My favorite style of teaching includes a lot of hands on projects and problem based lessons. I believe teaching is one of the most rewarding careers in the world!
My family consists of my husband, Eddie, our 3 year old daughter, Ava, and our two little dogs, Rocco and Logan. Soon we will welcome a baby boy into our family. My due date is October 15th. We are all very excited!
This summer has been very fun and relaxing. Ava and I spent a lot of time swimming, visiting libraries, visiting with family and friends, and exploring beaches. My Husband and I have also been working hard on getting the new baby’s room ready.
I look forward to getting to know all of you and your families. I know the 2017-2018 school year is going to be a fantastic one!!
