Dear 8th Grade Parents,
Such an exciting time to be an 8th grade student! My name is Ms. Yvette Herrera.
I am delighted that your child will be in my class! I was born and raised in Lake Stevens, WA and attended Holy Cross Catholic Parish while growing up. I completed my undergraduate studies at Washington State University, Go Cougs!, with a BA in Spanish and endorsement in English Language Learning. I received my Masters of Art in Teaching through the University of Portland. Teaching your children is my dream career. For two years I was a Campus Missionary with an organization called FOCUS - Fellowship of Catholic University students where I evangelized college students. This is where my passion took root and flourished. I love education! In my free time I love to hike, read novels, cook (especially Mexican cuisine and enhancing family recipes), travel and explore the Pacific Northwest hidden locations. I look forward to getting to know my 8th grade students and families!
