FIRST GRADE

Mrs. Laura Farina

Laura Farina

I grew up in a suburb of Chicago and am the youngest of six kids. I am a mom of three teenagers who keep me on the go. I have been teaching primary students for more than 20 years, and received my undergraduate degree from California State University, Northridge. I originally started working as a substitute for LAUSD in the San Fernando Valley. It was then that I truly fell in love with the profession and decided to go back and earn my teaching credential. I am an advocate for promoting lifelong learning and foundational academic skills while also helping to nurture students both socially and emotionally. I am currently enrolled as a graduate student and I will be receiving my Master's Degree in Educational Technology in May, 2018 from California State University, Fullerton. Some other things I enjoy doing include baking, reading, exploring and learning new things online, exercising, going for walks/hikes, taking trips, and most of all spending time with my family. 

FUN FACT: I got married two years ago and am now Mrs. Farina. I also completed grad school and received my MS in Educational Technology. Something silly to know is that I love thunderstorms and dark chocolate.
