Ms. Biondo

Hello! My name is Ms. Gina Biondo and welcome to Santee Alternative School / Long Term Independent Study Program! This year, I will be guiding 3rd and 4th grade students as they learn and grow throughout the school year! Even though my students will not be learning in the traditional "classroom," I am passionate about providing equal opportunities and quality education to my students. 

Some aspects of this program are new, just like me! This is my first year in the Alternative School / Long Term Independent Study Program and am very excited to begin this adventure with you! Last year, I taught distance learning Kindergarten for Santee School District, and previous to that, I taught in several different grade levels and districts around San Diego (Santee is by far my favorite!). 

I love finding ways to cultivate connections with my students and families! In the meantime, here is a little information about me: I have my masters degree in education, a multiple subject teaching credential, and my bachelors degree in accounting. (I worked in insurance accounting in my previous life.) Outside of school, I love camping at the beach, spending time with my family and friends, listening to music, and Jazzercise (it’s not the 80s headbands and leg warmers you’re envisioning!). I live with my 2 cats, Pepper Jack and Brie. They are not good roommates because they leave their toys all over the place!

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions for me - I can't wait to get to know you!
