Ms. Krizia Layam

Hi, welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Krizia Layam and I have been teaching at St. John the Baptist since 2020. Before working at SJBS I was a preschool instructional aide at a Catholic school in Seattle, Washington, where I also attended the University of Washington for my undergraduate. Go Dawgs! After living in Seattle, I decided to come back home to the Bay Area and received my Masters in Teaching degree from Santa Clara University. 

In my classroom, students will blossom in their reading and writing skills and build many new math skills. Students will also grow socially, emotionally, and physically, so it is important to me that your child feels safe, cared about, and happy when they are in my classroom. I love having fun in the classroom, but also know the importance of having a structured and organized learning environment. 

Outside of school, I love spending most of my free time outdoors going on hikes, camping, biking, and exploring new places. When I’m stuck indoors, I enjoy reading a good book, playing video games and watching the latest movies or TV shows. I am also a huge sports fan and the best part about being back in the Bay Area is being surrounded by Warriors, Sharks, and Niners fans again!
