Hello! My name is Alma Camacho. I am a Kindergarten teacher at Manzanita Charter School. My love for children and my passion for teaching is what inspired me to pursue a career as an educator. I am a certified bilingual teacher. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Arts and my teaching credential from Cal-Poly, San Luis Obispo. I have been teaching at Manzanita for 13 years. The Summer after I completed the teacher credential program at Cal Poly, I was offered a kindergarten position here at Manzanita and I’ve been teaching here since. Working at Manzanita has been a wonderful experience. I’ve seen our school develop and flourish into what it is today. The love and dedication that our staff gives day to day is “one of a kind” and it’s one of the many reasons that makes us a “one of a kind” school. I feel fortunate and blessed to be part of the Manzanita Family!
I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Oscar, for 23 years. We have 3 children: Ariana (6 yrs. old), Alessandra (2 yrs. old), and Adriel (10 months old). I have lived in the Central Coast for the last 30 years. I am happy to be part of this community and to raise my children here. I am very excited to start a new school year! I look forward to a great school year and getting to know you and your family. I hope to create a partnership with your family to make kindergarten a great and enjoyable experience for you and your child.
Welcome to our Manzanita Family!
