Lorena Vega

Teacher Assistant

Hello St. Mary’s. My name is Lorena Vega. It is with great pleasure, honor, and blessing to be part of St. Mary, Star of the Sea Catholic School. I will be the assistant teacher for kindergarten and first grade and a K-5th grade reading support teacher. For the past 25 years, I have dedicated myself to this profession knowing that the learners come from such diverse cultural and multi-proficiency level backgrounds. I have a Bachelor’s of Art in Chicano Studies with a Minor in Developmental Psychology from UCLA and a Master’s in Education from California State University, San Bernardino. My perseverance stems from my passion to teach kindergarteners to adults by serving and giving back to the global community as an educator with strong values and virtues. I love running, going to the beach, reading about the Saints, attending daily mass if possible, watching EWTN, listening to Relevant Catholic radio, cooking, and spending quality time with  family, especially my three grandchildren
