Name: Samantha Ayala
Grade: 5th Grade
I studied Liberal Studies with an emphasis on General Science at California State University, Northridge, and I received my Masters in Education and my Teaching Credential at UCLA (GO BRUINS!) I grew up in the San Fernando Valley, right outside of Los Angeles. Out of my immediate family I am the third teacher. I look forward to continuing my teaching journey here in Lompoc at La Honda STEAM Academy.
I enjoy watching my students gain new information and take it to become engineers, authors, mathematicians, and scientists within our classroom. Being in fifth grade allows us to start taking a look at what is happening in the world and start thinking how are we going to make it better! I cannot wait for the day that I see these students change the world!
