All About Mrs. Bottani

This is my 9th year teaching at Beresford Elementary school.  I am currently teaching 1st grade, but have have been very fortunate to be able to teach both Kindergarten and 2nd grade as well!

I began my college career as a math major but later went on to earn a Bachelors of Science in Human Development with a minor in Education, as well as my Multiple Subject Credential and Masters in Education, all at UC Davis.  While I love all curriculum areas, my favorite subject is math.  Most children who enter my class  leave with math being the favorite subject!!  I believe that learning should be fun, engaging, and accessible to all students.  I attended school in this very district and have loved giving back to the community in which I grew up!

I live in San Mateo with my husband, son, daughter, and dog TJ.  When not at school I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  

Please feel free to email me with any questions.
