Maestra Whaley

Hello, and welcome to 2nd grade! I grew up in Palo Alto, CA. My first experience teaching was when I was in the Peace Corps in Guatemala. I have taught in New York City, California, Italy, Japan, Uzbekistan, Serbia, and India. I have taught mostly in lower elementary grades but have also taught all levels including high school. I am excited to return to the MVWSD where I had previously taught bilingual kindergarten at Slater Elementary. In my free time I love to read and ride my bike at Shoreline. I have been an educator for 26 years. 

My favorite thing about Mistral:
I'm new to Mistral but I am so excited to join the community and I love that the mascot is the Quetzal - my favorite animal from Guatemala.
