Welcome to Room 402! I’m Ms. Agius and this will be my fifth year at Mesa Middle School! Before teaching at Mesa, I was a sixth grade teacher at Nipomo Elementary School for two years. But, I knew I loved math too much and wanted to teach it all day and that is why I transferred to Mesa! Speaking of math, I will be teaching two courses this year: Math 7 and Accelerated Math 7. These two courses challenge students with mathematics skills that they will need in their everyday lives, like how to calculate tip and tax, while also preparing students for their future math classes like Algebra by providing pre-algebra skills including working with negative numbers and variables!While I’m not teaching, I love to read, hike, and paddleboard. I also love baseball, soccer, and football. I can’t wait to “meet” you all virtually and hope you had an awesome summer!

Math: Hi there! My name is Mrs. Geyer, and I’m the one on the right! This is my teaching partner, Ms. Aguis, and we are so excited about being the 7th grade math teachers this year! I know math can be scary, and I want you to know that I am committed to taking the time and giving you the attention that you need to understand all you can! I plan to have some fun along the way as well! Can’t wait :)
Drama: Hi there! My name is Mrs. Geyer, and I am so excited to be the drama teacher this year! I have been teaching math in the district for over 7 years now, and this is my first year as a drama teacher! I’ve had a lot of experiences with theater over the years. I was a drama coach and a choreographer for a children’s theater company, and I am also a singer, actor, and dancer. We are going to work hard and have a lot of fun in this class! Can’t wait :)

My name is Natalie Manosar. I grew up in Arroyo Grande, attended Dana Elementary, Paulding Middle School and Arroyo Grande High School before leaving to Mississippi for college. I missed California so much that I graduated in 3 years with a Bachelors in Math Education. My first teaching job was at Paulding Middle School as a classroom size reduction teacher. Since then, I have taught grades 7-12 math in my 19 years experience. On my free time, I enjoy gardening, cooking, crafting, and watching movies. I have 2 daughters, a 5 year old and 15 year old. Fun fact: I had the pleasure of being my own daughter's Algebra teacher! (I don't think she enjoyed the experience. ) I am excited to be at Mesa for my 14th year. I hope you enjoy being a Mesa Hawk as much as I do.
