Sarita Burbank

My name is Sarita Burbank and I am excited and honored to be back for my third year teaching first grade at West Valley. I started in CUSD in 2001and have never left.  Of the past 16 years almost all have been in first grade, which I love! I am a California native born and raised in the Bay Area. I love traveling the world and seeing the sights, especially when those sights involve being close to the ocean. I spent a few years in Southern California-Los Angeles for college and San Diego for my credential program, which is where I met my Boston born husband. Luckily, I convinced him to move to the Golden State permanently and we have been living back in the Bay Area ever since. We have three VERY energetic little boys ages: 10, almost 6, and almost 4 whom we enjoy watching grow and change everyday. Our oldest plays ice hockey and our younger two love anything their big brother loves, plus anything with wheels and or dirt on it. Aside from spending time with family or friends, and teaching: I love to be outdoors, travel, shop, cook, watch sports and read if I have any free time. I cannot tell you how exciting I am about continuing as part the West Valley team, and look forward to meeting you and your children and having a fabulous school year!
