Welcome to Mrs. Soares Teacher Page

Distance Learning Plan (for the remainder of the year):


Google Classroom: All assignments will be posted in Google Classroom. Please check daily!

Office Hours: I will be holding weekly office hours. The schedule is below:

  • Teacher Profile: I grew up in Paradise, California, but I currently live in Oakland with my husband and our cute dog Cooper. I am a HUGE sports fan. I route for all Bay Area teams but have been a true Giants and 49ers fan since I was young. I grew up rooting for the Kings, but have become a Warriors fan since I moved to the Bay Area about 10 years ago. My most awesome sports experience was attending Game 2 of the Giants 2010 World Series win. In my free time, you will definitely find me with my nose stuck in a book.
  • Favorite Quote: One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” - Malala Yousafzai
  • College Education: I attended college at California State University, Chico. I majored in business marketing and international business. I spent my last year of college as an exchange student in Copenhagen, Denmark.  After working in the business world for a little over 8 years I decided to go back to school to become a teacher. I love working with kids and decided I wanted a career I could be passionate about!
