Mrs. Amanda OStiz
Hi, my name is Mrs. Amanda Ostiz and I am excited to share the next school year with you. I have taught in CNUSD for 10 years and most of that was spent in first grade. I am extremely passionate about teaching and I love what I do and the relationships formed with students and families. I personally value the education of the whole child: academics, emotional growth, social skills and physical health. The educational philosophy I operate on is a whole body approach based on the scientific research of how a child develops.
I have attended several schools that have helped shape my educational philosophy: this includes an Associate of Arts in Culinary Arts from Orange Coast College, a Bachelors of Science in Child Development and teaching credential from California State University Fullerton, and a Master's Degree in Teaching and Learning from California Baptist University.
I too have a family and value the time a spend with them as I know you value your family time. Outside of school I enjoy being active, crafting, reading and cooking.
