Ever wonder which teacher uses Room 25? Well, the new 8th grade Physical Science and English Language Development teacher, Cristina Daco, is now teaching there!
Daco was born in the Philippines and raised in the United States from the age of ten. She grew up with two brothers, so she collects X-Menana Basketball trading cards and watches wrestling (WWF). Daco attended University of San Francisco (USF) and Azusa Pacific University (APU).
Daco is enjoying working at RMS.
“The best part of teaching is connecting with students and seeing them achieve an ‘aha’ moments,” said Daco.
If she weren’t a teacher, she could love to be a food critic. In her spare time, she dances hula on the weekends, which she has been doing for twenty years. Daco enjoys frequenting various restaurants to experience different ethnic cuisines. Her favorite food is tacos. One of Daco’s pet peeves is toilet paper hanging under instead of being over the roll.
Daco’s favorite book is Their Eyes Were Watching God, and she likes the colors yellow and Dodger Blue. Her favorite vacation spot is Hawaii. She enjoys watching The Walking Dead, Sportscenter, and Remember The Titans.
With Daco’s help, Eighth Graders can receive a better score on the CST Science test, and newcomers can improve their English. Welcome Ms. Daco!
