Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Bonnie Chow. I realized as an adult that "Learn by Doing" is the way I learn best, and De Vargas' STEAM/Maker program encourages that growth mindset. I have taught 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th, and have been in CUSD and De Vargas for well over 20 years. I studied Biology and Social Sciences at UC Irvine, earned my teaching credential and Masters in Education at Claremont University, and most recently, earned my Administrative Credential from the Santa Clara County Office of Education.
Aside from STEAM and working with children, I enjoy many other activities. I am a HUGE Disney fan and enjoy going on vacations with my family, which includes 3 boys. Whenever possible, I enjoy shopping, eating, watching some of my favorite shows and movies (some include Star Trek, all things Marvel, Galaxy Quest, Star Wars, Pokémon, etc.), PokémonGo!, playing basketball, and archery.
Fun Fact: The book Anne of Green Gables inspired me to go into teaching.
