Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Bianca Bishop
Although I grew up in Sunnyvale, my family is from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I went to Cupertino Jr High and then to Lynbrook High School. I double majored at UC San Diego in Molecular Biology and Judaic Studies. I worked for 8 years in biotech, developing assays in diagnostics. Then I went to San Jose State University for my teaching credentials. I am very excited to be a part of CLIP and teaching students who are pursuing a bilingual education. I am inspired by my students' effort in keeping up with their studies in two languages, extra-curricular activities and preparation for middle school.
I love to read fantasy books. My favorite authors are Mercedes Lackey, Tamora Pierce, Sharon Shinn and David Eddings. I have my own library of science fiction and fantasy books that I reread over and over again. I enjoy playing video games like World of Warcraft. I really love the ocean and visiting cute little downtowns such as Carmel.
