Ms. Lisa Okuno
I am so excited to be at West Valley teaching second grade! Second grade is such an exciting time of growth in a child’s life. I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grade. I was at Eaton Elementary in Cupertino for 10 years. I grew up in Southern California, and moved to the Bay Area after meeting my husband. We have a 7-year-old daughter named Bella. In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, and going for walks in nature. My family and I love to travel, hike, and watch movies. I believe every person has a talent. Young children may not have discovered their talent by second grade, and as their teacher I see it as my challenge to help children discover or embrace their special talent.
