Kamala Silva, Instructional Aide


I have been at Mountain School for a long time, first as a student in the early 1970s. Then I returned as a parent with my three children in 1997. When they all graduated by 2009 I stayed on as a classroom aid and playground supervisor. I studied Early Childhood Education at Cabrillo College. I also spent seven years with my children at a parent co-op pre-school geared towards parent education. I feel strongly that school should be an emotionally and academic supportive environment that supports every child's individual needs. I feel that Mountain school is a place where I am able to be part of that, with the kind and caring staff we have. In my free time I love reading, gardening, sewing, drawing, camping and spending time with my wonderful family.
