Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Pinky Patel
I started at Murdock-Portal as a parent volunteer and loved the school so much that I began substitute teaching. This is my second year of teaching and I am so glad to be part of our amazing K/1 team. I enjoy being around young minds and seeing them grow.
I grew up in Montreal, Canada where I received my Bachelor of Education from McGill University specializing in early childhood education. I live in Cupertino with my husband, Ankit, and two children, Pahri and Dhun. I’m excited to have both my children at Murdock Portal this year! They are lucky to be taught by our professional and caring teachers.
I love to dance, listen to music, play volleyball, badminton and digital scrapbooking. My family and I look forward to traveling during our days off.
I feel privileged to be teaching your children at a school that focuses on both academics and social-emotional development. Welcome to our penguin family!
