My name is Alyssa Pineda and I am the 8th grade teacher at Central Union Elementary. I grew up in Merced and then moved to Fresno to begin college. I started out with a Biology major, but after two years decided teaching was for me! I attended Fresno State and National University to earn my degree and teaching credential. This is my 9th year teaching and have worked at Gustine, Cutler, Fowler, Kerman, Firebaugh, and now Lemoore for the third year.
I have a wonderful class of 8th graders this year and we are a very busy group. Our schedule includes reading, math, science, p.e./sports, u.a., language, and social studies. Through positive reinforcement, cooperative learning, technology, and hands on based projects our classroom is always engaged and active. Please come by and see all of the great activities we are accomplishing every day!
