Hello, my name is Myriam Fuentes and I am the Pre-K teacher at SJBS. Prior to becoming the Pre-K teacher, I had been the after school Pre-K aide for the past five years. I received my B.S in Justice Studies with a minor in Social Work from SJSU. Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a teacher. I have always enjoyed helping others learn and grow.
Prior to teaching at St. John the Baptist, I worked as a Para-Educator for a public school. While working as a Para-Educator, I had the opportunity to work with visually impaired students which allowed me to do a lot of hands-on learning. This experience really challenged me to go above and beyond to help each student I worked with feel confident and succeed in school.
My philosophy of teaching is that every child is capable of learning and they learn best when they are in an environment in which they feel welcomed, safe, and comfortable to be themselves.
