Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kimberly Silva-Beltran
I grew up in San Jose and have lived here all my life. I attended Archbishop Mitty High School and then went on to Santa Clara University to receive a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies. I continued studying at Santa Clara to achieve my teaching credential and Masters of Arts with an Emphasis in Character Education. I have been teaching in the Cupertino Union School District for 23 years.
I believe in creating a positive and safe environment where all students can learn and share. My goals for my students are to develop a greater sense of responsibility toward their learning and behavior, become independent learners, thinkers, active-listeners, and participators, and to become a community of life-long learners.
