You must learn day by day, year by year,
To broaden your horizons.
The more things you love,
The more things you are interested in,
The more you enjoy,
The more you accomplish.

Hello! My name is Alma Diaz-Camacho and I am a Dual-Immersion kindergarten teacher. This year will be my first year teaching at Manzanita Charter School. I am very excited to start the new school year!

I was born in Mexico City; however I was raised in a small town near Zacapu, Michoacán. At the age of 10 my family immigrated to the United States. I have lived in Santa Maria for the last 20 years and I love living in this area.  

I have been married for twelve years to my wonderful husband, Oscar. It is thanks to his support and my eagerness that I was able to make my dream of a college education a reality.

I attended Allan Hancock College for about 5 years while working full time to complete my general education. I then transferred to Cal-Poly, San Luis Obispo, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies in March 2008. I continued to attend Cal-Poly as a graduate student in their rigorous teaching credential program. I completed the program in March 2009 and became certified as a bilingual teacher.  I did my first student teaching service at Mary Buren Elementary School in Guadalupe, where this summer I worked as a kindergarten teacher. I also had the great opportunity to do my last quarter of student teaching service at Pacheco Elementary, a Dual Immersion School in San Luis Obispo. During my time at Pacheco I was able to experience first hand the great benefits of a dual-immersion and the positive learning environment this type of program provides. This is why I feel extremely lucky and honored to be working here at Manzanita.

I look forward to the beginning of a wonderful school year full of learning and fun! I also look forward to working closely with parents to make kindergarten a great experience for their children. College begins in Kindergarten!
