Degrees and Certifications:
Pk-6th Bilingual ESL Certification Master in Education
Mrs. Gloria Casanova
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree
in Education. I hold a Bilingual Certification from Early Childhood to 6th grade.
I have worked in different roles in education over the years: classroom, coordinator, coach and
mentor to teachers and students.
I have decades of experience in education, but I still feel a sense of excitement at the beginning
of every new school year.
I am currently the 4th grade Bilingual Mentor teacher at Ridgemont, I am thrilled to be here.
My philosophy is that every child deserves to be looked in the eye and treated with respect.
Treating a child as an equal instead of a charge goes a long way in motivating them to want to
learn. There’s nothing like watching the expression change on their faces as they make
connections and begin to understand a new concept. When they ask questions, find new
perspectives, and successfully challenge their thinking, it makes me immeasurably happy. The
ultimate joy for me in the classroom is knowing I played a part in furthering a child’s education.
Parents, I would like to invite you to work with me to make this a successful school year for
your children. I am convinced that we can work as a team to preparing our future presidents,
lawyers, astronauts, or anything your child wants to be.
