Welcome to the Eighth Grade Home Page!
Mrs. Navia is excited to start a new school year. She is a dedicated Vice Principal and teacher here at St. Anthony of Padua School. She loves the SAP community and has had the pleasure of serving this community for the seventh year. She is currently the 8th-grade homeroom teacher and provides rigorous Math lessons for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. She takes pride in being the Safety Coordinator, ensuring that all staff and students know what to do in case of an emergency.
Mrs. Navia has a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies from California State University Dominguez Hills, with an emphasis in Mathematics, a Spanish BCLAD Credential, a California Teaching Credential, and Masters Degree in Leadership from Mount Saint Mary’s University. Mrs. Navia is the youngest of 9 siblings and a first-generation college graduate, and she is proud to share that fact with everyone.
With the help of God, she has been able to reach her goals and is constantly setting new expectations for herself.
She hopes to inspire our students to continue on to higher education no matter what their background.
Mrs. Navia has been happily married to Mr. Navia since 2004, and outside of the classroom she enjoys playing softball with her husband, family, and friends on a co-ed team at Mas Fukai Park, visiting Disneyland and playing with her dogs Tinkerbell, Foxy and Harley Quinn.
