Second Grade

Welcome to the Second Grade Home Page!

See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father. (Matthew 10:18)

Sr. Tina is a strong believer in a holistic education, forming the student not only in academics, but also physically, emotionally and spiritually. She believes that the beginning of a strong foundation starts with the young ones. Therefore, from teaching academically to building foundational relationships with each individual, she hopes to impact each student as a whole. She desires to instill within each person a sense of their own worth and dignity upon which they can grow to their fullest potential.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Sr. Tina has been with the Sisters of Lovers of the Holy Cross Community for at least 6 years. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Architecture at UC Berkeley and is currently pursuing her Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and Master’s in Education at Loyola Marymount University. She loves teaching academics using her gifts of creativity, music, arts and crafts. Most especially, she loves bringing all curriculum-based teachings in a full circle back to God, the origin of our faith. She is excited to interact with and educate her 2nd grade students, building the foundation for their future success and deepened love for our Lord through the 2nd grade curriculum and First Reconciliation and Holy Communion preparations. She invites all families to be her partner in educating the students and encourages prayers for herself and the 2nd graders this upcoming year! Thank you for your support and God Bless!
