Andrea Fuentes was born and raised in San Pedro, CA. While Andrea attended public schools in San Pedro throughout her childhood, she eventually got to experience the wonderful world of Catholic education in her college years. While attending the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana for her undergraduate studies, Andrea developed a life-long love of all things Irish. For her graduate studies, Andrea attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, where she earned her M.A. in Elementary Education.
Andrea has a diverse background of teaching experience, having taught in Catholic, public, charter, and independent schools. She began her teaching career at St. Sebastian School in West LA, where she taught Fourth Grade and coached the boys and girls volleyball teams. Most recently, Andrea taught First Grade at Brentwood School, where she developed a deep understanding of the foundations of literacy.
When not in the classroom, Andrea enjoys hiking, reading, and painting with her four year old daughter Ella. She feels very fortunate to be joining the OLR community, and can't wait for a fun year with her Third Grade class!
