Nicole Maruyama

4th Grade Teacher


School is one of my favorite places to be! Ever since I was little, I loved learning about the new things. My favorite school activities have always been reading and writing. This year, I’m making a promise to read more nonfiction texts.

My favorite thing about teaching is meeting new students each year. I also especially love to create new classroom activities and art projects. As each year passes I always learn something new about my students and myself.

I earned my Bachelors degree and Masters degree at the University of Southern California (USC). I also earned my law degree from Southwestern Law School. I have had many adventures studying and meeting new people.

Outside of the classroom I like to spend time with my family. I also like to play the piano, sew, draw, and dance. An important family member is my dog, C.C. She turned 13 this year! That’s 68 in dog years! C.C. and I walk together every day, early in the morning and after dinner. We are always looking for new animal friendly adventures in Los Angeles!
