Mrs. Lina Alfaro
I’m Mrs. Alfaro and I’m one of the 5th-grade Dual Immersion teachers at Valley View Elementary School. I cannot wait to get to know you and your family this year!
Let me share a little bit about myself. I graduated from Rubidoux High School and then attended RCC. Then, I transferred to California State University, Sacramento, and received a B.A. in Child Development with an emphasis in Elementary Education. I was part of a binational credential program where I had the opportunity to student teach in Oaxaca, Mexico. After teaching for a few years, I decided to go back to school. I earned an M.A. in Education with an emphasis in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Teaching is my passion and I love everything about it!
I currently live in Riverside with my husband and son. I love salsa dancing, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends.
