    5th Grade

    Miss Lara was born and raised in the Central Valley of California and now lives in San Luis Obispo. She graduated from Cal Poly with her Bachelors of Science in Liberal Studies and a minor in Biology. In 2015, she received her teaching credential at Cal Poly because she loves the “Learn By Doing” attitude, especially when it comes to science.


    Along with teaching, Miss Lara developed a passion for traveling after studying abroad in the Czech Republic where she was able to learn about different cultures, explore new cities, and meet amazing people. She recently went to Thailand this summer to get her fix of spicy food. Beyond the classroom Miss Lara enjoys the beach, hiking with her sister’s dog and can be found reading at local coffee shops.


    Miss Lara is thrilled to begin her next adventure teaching fifth grade at Fillmore. Her main goal is to motivate her students to become enthusiastic lifelong learners. She is eager to meet her students and work together to make fifth grade fantastic!
