My name is May Chu. I have two awesome children, Xavier and Leila. They are 8 years old and are full of energy. My kiddos and I enjoy camping, hiking, gold panning, swimming, fishing, and so much more! We still have so many new places to explore and learn about the Northern California area. When I’m not teaching, you may find me either hiking, backpacking, reading, camping, knitting, hanging out at the beach, or traveling somewhere.
I was originally from Sacramento, California but moved to Southern California to attend the California State University of Northridge where I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Development and my teaching credential. My experiences include teaching four years of second grade and ten years of full day kindergarten in the Los Angeles Unified School District. I was very fortunate to work at two great schools with dedicated, supportive, involved teachers, parents, administrators, and support staff.
Two years ago, I moved to Northern California and was given an amazing opportunity to teach first grade at Rocklin Academy Gateway. It has been a wonderful experience to teach at a place where the students, parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff work as a team and strive for the same goal of student success. I am very excited to continue another year teaching first graders! Looking forward to working with your kiddo!
