Victoria S. – Montessori Primary Associate Teacher
Victoria is so happy to be apart of the Pomegranate School family! Ever since she joined our team, Victoria has been mentored by a Master Montessori Teacher in the Montessori method, and has been trained in the Reggio-Emilia education model during our monthly staff meetings. Victoria has always loved children and worked as a nanny for years. Additionally, in Ukraine, Victoria earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Ecology and Environmental Protection and was a successful business owner of two businesses. As a bi-lingual teacher, one of her favorite parts of the day is teaching Russian to the children. Being a native Russian speaker, it feels rewarding teaching bilingual children as well as exposing native english-speaking children to the language! When she’s not at school, Victoria loves to spend her time with her daughter and husband, and has never missed a weekend getting outside and adventuring.
Teresa B. – Toddler Co-Teacher
After earning her Bachelor’s Degree in Child and Adolescent Development from Cal State University Fullerton, Ms. Teresa has spent the last 5 years teaching and has loved every moment of it. Teresa realized just how much she loves working with children after giving birth to her son and loves this field so much because she learns in a new way every day just how amazing children really are. Outside of work, Teresa loves going to the movies with her son, being surrounded by family, and making sure to catch every Coldplay concert she can.

Isela is so excited to be a preschool co-teacher at our Great Park location. She discovered after attending Laguna Technical College and Long Beach City College that teaching is her passion.

Outside of teaching preschool, you can find Isela dancing, cooking, going to the beach, and laughing with her fiance and two step-sons, who are her world.
