My name is Margarita Siordia. I am the preschool teacher in Room 150. I have been working for Paramount Unified School District for 22 years. For ten years, I worked as a Bilingual Assistant. I graduated from Cerritos Community College where I earned two Associate of Arts degrees and received a Child Development Achievement Certificate. I also possess a Site Supervisor Permit from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.    also earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of La Verne. Working with young children is my passion. I am eager to teach and to get to know your children this school year. My hobbies include reading, walking, dancing, and listening to music. I am very excited about the new school year and look forward to having a fabulous school year.
