Second Grade Teachers





Mariel Montesinos was born in Oaxaca, Mexico and migrated to California at the age of 5.  She attended Healdsburg Unified schools and received a Bachelor’s of Arts in Anthropology and Native American Studies from the University of California, Davis. After working as an instructional aide, full inclusion aide, and substitute teacher, she decided to pursue a Multiple Subjects teaching credential at Sonoma State University. She is highly motivated, enthusiastic, and a dedicated educator who wants all students to be successful life-long learners. She is passionate about teaching and is committed to creating a multicultural atmosphere that is both stimulating and encouraging to students. She has a personal passion for performing arts; she has been dancing Ballet Folklorico for over 20 years.














María Bernadette Torres was born and raised in Windsor, California. She was in the second graduating class of the bilingual immersion charter school in Windsor, Cali Calmécac Language Academy. She graduated from Sonoma State University with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Environmental Studies, with a minor in Biology. She has eight years’ experience in natural resource management in Sonoma County and seven years’ experience as an exclusively bilingual substitute teacher at Cali Calmécac Language Academy. Although she is very passionate about protecting our natural resources, she realized her heart was in teaching and decided to become a teacher. She will begin a teaching credential program in January, 2017 to pursue a multiple subject credential. She is an asset to CCLA with diverse experience, strong ties to the community, tech knowledge, willingness to help others and love of teaching young children. She enjoys re-discovering with her daughter, enjoying diverse foods with her fiancée, playing board games with girlfriends and meditating while gardening.
