Jr. High Math

Ms. Karina Pineda


Hello my name is Karina Pineda and I am extremely excited to be joining St. Michael’s as the fifth grade homeroom teacher as well as the junior high math teacher. This will be my first year teaching at St. Michael’s and I am looking forward to getting to know all of my students. This will be my second year working with middle school students. 


Growing up I spent my summers volunteering at the Elementary school I attended. I have previously worked as a Teacher’s Assistant at Cal State Long Beach working with young children where I also obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Family Studies and Child Development. 


I absolutely love all aspects of education—both teaching and learning myself. I am very passionate about guiding my students to realize their highest potential and helping them learn the skills necessary to achieve it. I look forward to working with parents this year as teacher-parent relationships are vital for student success.
