Hello there! And welcome to the 2018 – 2019 school year. This will be a year full of many interesting activities and a year to sharpen many of the necessary skills needed for upper elementary school and beyond. Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am Mrs. Romero; I have worked in the educational field for over twenty years in various subjects and grade levels. Born and raised in the greater Los Angeles area, I attended Van Ness Avenue Elementary School for kindergarten and first grade. It excites me to continue my work with the students and staff here at Van Ness Avenue Elementary School. I strive to engage my students in the learning process and help them develop independent problem solving and critical thinking skills. I am looking forward to working with you to make this year successful. That will be our main priority! Thank you in advance for your support. By working together we can make this a pleasant and productive year for all of us.
