Karina Alvarez

Hi I’m Maestra Alvarez,
This year I am teaching a 3rd/4th-grade combination class here at Sherman Oaks Community School in the Campbell Union School District. I have been teaching at Sherman Oaks since 2006.  I attended San Jose State University for My B.A. in Natural Sciences, the BCLAD credential program, and my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Literacy Across the Curriculum for an Equitable Society (LACES).

My desire to teach is drawn by my desire to make a difference in students’ lives.  I also want to influence parents and get them more involved in their child’s education.
