About me: Hello, my name is Ms. Camacho. I teach 5th grade at Mission Elementary.

Philosophy: Education is the great equalizer. Be nice and work hard. I was the kid that had everything against her, everywhere I looked there was poverty, inequality and various obstacles meant to make one just another statistic. With hard work, dedication and my mother, I was able to earn my degrees and become a teacher. I absolutely love my career! I cannot see myself doing anything else in the world. I became a teacher so all my students know that it is possible to achieve their dreams, to create a better life for themselves and their family. I believe every child is entitled to be in a safe learning environment, where they are academically challenged and feel empowered to be the best they can be!

Academic History:

      • Fallbrook High School Alumni
      • UC San Diego Alumni, B.A. in political science with an emphasis in American Politics
      • CSU San Marcos Alumni, Multiple Subject Credential, BCLAD (authorized to teach in Spanish), and a single subject credential in Social Science

YES! Teachers manage to have personal lives even though it seems like we live in school (As a kid, I thought all teachers lived in school and didn't even go to the grocery store since there was food at the cafeteria.)
