4th Grade Teacher
Greetings! I am a 4th grade teacher at Fern Elementary. My name is Cathy Santome and 2020, Mark's the 24th year I have had the privilege of teaching at Fern. I have had enjoyed my years at Fern, and it seems like home to me.
I attended Newton middle school (now Richardson) and completed 4 years at South High.
Upon graduating from South, I attended El Camino College. After 2 years, I ransferred to Cal State Dominguez hills as a Liberal Studies major. I received my BA degree and then obtained my multiple subject teaching credential.
I knew since Kindergarten that one day I would become a teacher! My teacher was kind, caring, and dynamic. I wanted to be like her! I stood up on a chair one day, and loudly announced to the class, "I am going to be a teacher when I grow up!" My teacher gently led me off of the chair and said, "You will be a great teacher one day! But, please stay off of the furniture."
Here I am today! Proud to be a teacher at Fern!
