Meet our Fourth Grade Teachers
I’m so excited for another fabulous 4th grade year at CMCS!
It’s my ninth year of teaching (3rd, 4th, and 5th grades), and my third year here. I fell in love with the school as a parent, became a substitute teacher and weekly consulting psychotherapist here, then returned to school to get my teaching credential, finally landing back with my Community family as a 4th grade teacher.
I love: integrating the arts in all subjects, teaching from a multi-cultural perspective, and connecting social studies to current events. I also love: reading, writing, travelling, hiking, the color orange, octopuses, nectarines, peonies, dusk, brussel sprouts and Magic Shell (NOT together)! I hate cantaloupe, scary movies, and spilling my coffee in the car!
Class DOJO is the best way to reach me (or leave a message with the office, send a note, telegraph, owl, or Pony Express).
Amy Miko Teaching Assistant
Hi! I’m Jackie. This will be my fifth year teaching, and my third year here at Community.
I’ve lived in Los Angeles all my life (except for my four years in college). I was born and raised here in LA, where I lived with my parents, two older twin sisters and three dogs. I attended Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York. While at Skidmore, I majored in both Education and Spanish and during my junior year I studied abroad in Alcalá de Henares, Spain.
My hobbies include cooking (and of course eating), reading, watching movies, exercising, and spending time with my partner and our dog, Sadie. I also love to play and watch sports. I play in adult sports leagues whenever I get the chance (I’m currently playing soccer, softball and kickball). Oh, and coffee…I love coffee!
Edgardo Mota Lozano Teaching Assistant
I’m looking forward to another fabulous year at CMCS. I have been an employee here since 1997. I started as a Teacher’s Assistant and became a teacher in 2005. After working as the Magnet Coordinator for four years I decided to get back to the classroom in 2018. Fourth Grade has always been my favorite grade to teach. When I’m not in the classroom teaching or preparing lesson plans I enjoy watching and playing basketball. I love Community Magnet and have cherished my 22 years here working with our wonderful students, families and staff.
