Ms. De La Mater

Hello! My name is Veera De La Mater.

 This year will be my third year of teaching fifth grade! I have taught at several different elementary schools throughout VCUSD over the past 8 years. So far I have taught first, second, fourth, and fifth grades. Fifth grade is such a fun grade to teach. The students are able to facilitate such amazing dialogue with each other, and fifth grade has the best and most intense curriculum in elementary school. It’s quite a wild ride!  

 I grew up mostly here in Vallejo. I attended Stefan Manor Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Highland Elementary, and Vallejo Junior High School. I graduated from Benicia High School in 2000. I went on to graduate from Sonoma State University with a BA in Liberal Studies, and a Multiple Subject Credential.
