Welcome to Fourth Grade!
Meet Mrs. Isaeff
Mrs. Isaeff is definitely a pro when it comes to 4th graders. Prior to teaching 4th grade at Corpus Christi, Mrs. Isaeff taught 4th grade at St. Barnabas School in Alameda for 12 years. (Her own favorite 4th grade memories include studying California history, cooking, playing soccer, and bike riding into town with her friends.) The strong academic program and its emphasis on family is what Mrs. Isaeff likes most about Corpus Christi.
Mrs. Isaeff received her BA in Sociology at Sacramento State University and her teaching credential at St. Mary’s College in Moraga. In addition to teaching, she loves spending time with her family. “Together we enjoy camping, traveling, and visiting friends and family.”
Meet Mrs. Ratto
Mrs. Trish Ratto graduated from Anna Maria College in MA with a lifetime teaching credential. During her junior year at Anna Maria, she participated in a semester exchange program at Holy Names College. She loved the Bay Area so much that after graduation she moved to CA. She attended the University of CA, Hayward where she received her CA teaching credential, while subsequently working two jobs...one of which was here at Corpus Christi as an aide. She has worked on and off at Corpus, both as an aide and substitute teacher, over the past 20 years. In addition, she taught part-time in kindergarten and fifth grade at St. Elizabeth Elementary School.
Mrs. Ratto thoroughly enjoys working in the 4th grade classroom with Mrs. Isaeff. She and her family are longtime parishioners of Corpus Christi and all three of her children have attended school here. In her spare time, she enjoys teaching Sunday School, attending her children's various sporting/scouting activities, long walks with friends and cheering on the Boston Red Sox along with the A's and Giants!!
