Hello! My name is Ms. Cordera. I am so excited to be a third grade teacher at Beacon Park! This is my first year teaching, but my sixth year in education. I was a substitute teacher and an educational assistant before getting my Master of Arts in Teaching at the University of California, Irvine. I did my first student teaching placement in transitional kindergarten at Cypress Village in Irvine. Then I was placed in fourth grade at Mariners Elementary in Newport-Mesa. Teaching is my passion. My goal is to create a community of life-long learners who see their own potential to succeed.
I love to spend my free time at the beach. I also enjoy rock climbing, reading, and yoga. When I can, I volunteer at a food pantry and animal shelter in my hometown.
I am excited to be a part of the Beacon Park family!
