Mrs. Betty Yamasaki

Welcome to Mrs.Yamasaki's Website!  A bit about my background.  I have been teaching at Los Altos High School since 1995 (two years before that, I taught at Jefferson Middle School in Southern California)  In 2017, I have been honored being awarded Teacher of the Year by the Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District and was recognized for that honor by the County Office of Eudcation for Santa Clara County.

My parent are first generation immigrants and I am the first on my family to get a college degree.  But had to figure out how to naviage and succeed my in high school academics and get into college.  Due to this experience, I decided to become a math teacher because I wanted to help students who may not know how to nagivate high school.  I especially want to hep those who have struggled in math to realize that with the resources here at LAHS, resiliency, quality effort, and support from teacher, classmates, and family, students can be successful and maybe even begin to "like" math.
