My name is Yesenia Castellanos. I grew up and currently live
in San Jose. I received my bachelor’s degree at San Jose State
University and my masters and teaching credential at Santa Clara
University. This is my third year teaching fifth grade at Garfield Community School.
I have chosen to be part of the GCS because of its warm and welcoming sense of community and aspirations to empower the Latinx youth.
In our classroom, I plan on providing a safe, positive, and engaging
environment in which students feel challenged, yet capable of
reaching their full potential. I also hope to support students in their
social and emotional growth and well-being, because I believe that
this plays a vital role in a student’s development and journey to
academic and personal success. I believe that all students possess unique talents and are capable of being positive contributors to our community. I will work with my students to help them find and foster these talents and reach their full potential.
Thank you for your unconditional support! Go gators!
