Hello! My name is Maria G. Finnerty. This will be my first year teaching Special Day Class at VAAS. I am thrilled to be teaching your child in their math courses.
I am excited and thrilled to be teaching your child at VAAS! I have been teaching students with IEP's since 2006. I love teaching all subjects. Math though is my favorite!
I grew up in East Los Angeles. I am the youngest of five children. My parents instilled in me the value of hard work and ethics. I attended Cal State Northridge where I received my Bachelor's degree in Child Development. I went on to receive my Master's of Science in Marriage, Family, Therapy, and also my Educational Specialist credential.
I have three grown children, Natalie, Michele, and Connor. I also have three grandchildren Amy, Lola, and Grayden. I love spending time with my family and best friends. I also enjoy working out and taking Zumba classes. My dog Koko loves to go on a bike run with me. My favorite place is the beach, where I can relax and enjoy the beauty of the ocean!
Looking forward to a successful year at VAAS!
