Hello everyone!! I’m Fernando Gutierrez and Im excited to be apart of Growing Light Montessori!
I was born and raised in the Bay Area, I’ve been teaching for the past 10 years and currently reside in the East Bay. I graduated from SF state with a BA in Liberal studies with a concentration in education and what I love about teaching is sharing my passion and curiosity for discovering new ideas and experiences.
As a fluent Spanish speaker I can appreciate cultural diversity within the community and also feel excited about sharing Spanish with the children in the class.
Some of my hobbies and interest are cooking, hiking, gardening, art, and practicing yoga and martial arts. I’m grateful to be apart of such a wonderful school and community and look forward to growing with everyone while working with such caring educators!
