October Educator of the week Marja Santos

Why are you an educator?

I am an educator because I have always wanted to help children that need extra support.  In high school I was an off campus TA and worked at an elementary school mentoring children with emotional needs.  This began my adventure into special education and my journey working with children with behavioral and emotional needs.

What do you enjoy most about your career?

I love that everyday is an adventure with my students, you never know what to expect.  I am so proud when they share their accomplishments with me, it is wonderful to watch them grow and realize how amazing they are.

What do you do in your spare/free time?

I love sharing my spare time with my husband and son.  We love being outdoors enjoying the fresh air especially while hiking or biking.  My favorite new past time is watching my son on his new adventure in BMX racing!

What does being a member of the Vacaville Teachers Association mean to you?

Being a member of VTA means always having the support of others who understand our field.
