Fourth Grade

Welcome to the Fourth Grade Home  Page!

Hello, My name is Mrs. Gomez-Contreras and I am truly delighted and looking forward to being the forth grade teacher here at St. Anthony Padua. I grew up in Gardena and I have been a St. Anthony parishioner for most of my life and also a former Alumni of this school.

I graduated from CSULB with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies. I have about 20 years of eperience in working with children and 7 years of teaching experience at St. Albert the Great. I also coached softball for many years.

I hold high expectations for my students and encourage them to do their very best. Not only do I guide my students through their academic growth, but also to blossom spiritually and morally through the teachings of Jesus Christ our Lord.  Besides my passion for teaching I’m a proud mommy of two and enjoy spending time with my family.
