Catalina discovered her passion for teaching at a young age. She remembers always going back to her previous teachers and would often find herself providing support not only for the students but for teachers as well. Seeing the impact her contributions made in the students lives she’s worked with continues to grow towards her desire to teach.
Catalina received her Bachelor’s degree in Bilingual Liberal Arts at CSU, Chico. As she begins her student teaching this year at High Tech High’s Graduate School of Education Program, she will be working with the 3rd Grade team to earn her credential this school year. She is beyond excited to learn, grow and mold young minds alongside the HTeCV and her Cohort 5! When she is not in classrooms, Catalina enjoys spending time hiking, reading, and spending time at the beach.
