As Blackstock grows, we will have to hire new teachers, and one of the wonderful ones we were able to snag for this year is out in our new classroom annex.  Today, I had a chance to interview one of our newest 7th and 8th grade teachers, Ms. Xayaphone.

Ms. Xayaphone is a proud Laotian, who was born on April 15th.  Ms. Xayaphone teaches 7th and 8th grade math in one of our newest classrooms, room 58 and this year is her 6th year teaching. In fact, she received her Teaching Credentials at UCSB (University of California, Santa Barbara) and was an Undergraduate at UC Irvine. She was inspired to become a teacher from her high school ASB (Associated Student Body) coach/mentor/like-father, Tom Pariso.  During her free time she loves to cook, watch movies, hike at the Botanical Gardens, and mainly hanging out with her family.  She also enjoys Lao, Korean, Mexican, Filipino cuisine and her mother’s special cooking. Her favorite book of all time is “Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle.  One of her goals this year is to help all students who are struggling in math and to teach them strategies to improve themselves.  Ms. Xayaphone’s advises all students to “be the best you can be and be grateful not fearful”.  We are certainly grateful to have you here with us Ms. Xayaphone.  Be sure to say hello and make her feel welcome.
