Angelica Aguayo

A. Aguayo, Spanish
Teaching is my passion. Having the opportunity to teach students and watching them excel academically is my dream. When I'm not teaching, I love being with my family, going on hikes and dancing.

Maggie Alcala

I've lived in Healdsburg for about 20 years and my three children have attended HUSD schools. I've been a teacher for HUSD for 17 years. I'm bilingual and love traveling.

E. Ashleigh, Kindergarten
When I'm not having fun teaching, I love to run, read, dance, paint, and explore outside. One day I hope to illustrate a children's book.

Aaron Beseda

A. Beseda, 4th Grade
I'm a gardener, camper, fisher and hiker. I'm a little bit of ornery mixed with obsessive, but my family has stuck with me so I guess I've "made growth" (however, I'd like to view it as being very passionate about many things). The scariest and most amazing part of teaching is knowing that each of your students is someone's "whole world". They come to us with different personalities and abilities and the only way to do right by our families is to try to help each one of them improve and become their best version of themselves.

Sandi Mazza

S. Mazza, Reading Specialist/InterventionI love helping students become better readers. My passion lies in igniting a love for reading that grows out of exposure, competence, and confidence. The most impactful influence in reading growth is reading more. By filling learning gaps and sharing my enthusiasm for quality children’s literature through my extensive collection, I aim to inspire and motivate my students to become avid readers for life.
