It is with great excitement that I introduce myself to the parents of the second grade class. My name is Jane Symonds and I am married with two grown children. I live in Fremont, and I am a parishioner of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church. I have been employed with the Oakland Diocese for roughly 16 years now. I have taught at Our Lady of Guadalupe School some years ago, St. Felicitas Catholic School, and Holy Spirit Catholic School. I am very happy to be back at OLG where my passion for teaching began. Aside from having the opportunity to teach at different grade levels and subjects, I have been part of principal leadership teams/vice principal for the past 11 years.
Ms. Angela Longarini is the second grade full time assistant. She supports the second grade students in small and whole group activities, field trips, and First Holy Communion. Ms. Longarini recently graduated from San Jose State University, with a degree in child and adolescent development. She is also a graduate of St. Edwards Catholic School. She is currently attending the CalStateTEACH program. We are so blessed to have her in second grade.
