Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Amy Beare

I was born in northeast Ohio, but have lived in California most of my life. I went to Del Mar High School in San Jose, graduated from Santa Clara University, received my teaching credential from San Jose State University and recently completed a masters in journalism education through Kent State University in Ohio (full circle!)

I love teaching because:

1. I believe a strong democracy comes from critically educated citizens.

2. I believe in the power of text to shape attitudes, character and creativity.

3. I think teenagers are awesomely fun to discuss and learn with!
