Ms. Amanda Lara
5th Grade Teacher
Hey Fern Falcons! I am Ms. Lara. I have been teaching now for 4 years.
My first year I taught a 4/5 combo at Torrance Elementary School. Now
for the past 3 years I have been teaching here at Fern Elementary
School. I absolutely love 5 th grade and being here at Fern!
I went to high school at Calvary Chapel in Santa Ana. I did my first two
years of college at Orange Coast Community College from there I
transferred to Biola University. I graduated with a Bachelors in
Elementary Education with an emphasis in Biology. I took at break from
my Masters in Teaching from Biola University. However, I am about 2
classes and 3 part test away from having a Masters in Teaching with the
ability to teach Middle School science and High School Biology.
During my free time I enjoy working out at the gym, spending time with
my family, and spending time with my friends. I also love being
outdoors and active, so you can find me at the beach or hiking
