Updates on 1st/2nd Grade Teachers

St. Angela Families,


We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Susie Sweeney will be moving to the 1st Grade position.  After interviewing over 15 candidates, we have hired a 2nd grade teacher. We welcome Elva Pelayo to our staff and look forward to a great year!


From Mrs. Pelayo:

Hello, my name is Mrs. Pelayo, and I am very excited to join the St. Angela Merici faculty as the new second grade teacher.  I feel blessed to have the opportunity to join this wonderful staff and school community.  I enjoy working with children and believe every child should be valued and treated with respect.  I’ve always known I wanted to be a teacher from a very young age, this is why I pursued my BA degree from San Jose State University.  I hold a Clear Teaching credential and a Masters degree in Education.  With experience teaching in Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and second grade.  I look forward to seeing your child grow spiritually and academically this year.  I have lived in Fullerton over twelve years with my husband, three boys, and daughter.  My boys attended or are currently attending St. Angela Merici.  The school and church have been our home
for over eight years and I am thrilled to now be teaching here as well.  I look forward to getting to know all of you this 2017-2018 school year.
