3rd - Mrs. Jose

Hello My Name Is...

Maria Jose



Hello! Welcome to Next Generation STEAM Academy. My name is Maria Angelli Jose and I will be teaching 3rd Grade for the school year 2017-2018. I was born in the beautiful paradise of Saipan (U.S territory, Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands), and raised in the Philippines. My family moved to California for more opportunities and adventures. I’ve been happily married for five years now and we are constantly praying to be blessed with a little angel soon.

I taught 5th Grade in the CNMI Public School System from 2008-2012. During that time I realized that teaching is not just a job… it requires commitment, passion and dedication to influence young minds to do their best and to inspire them towards their goals in life. I am currently perusing my Masters of Arts in Teaching and Learning and I am hoping to finish it before the end of this year. I am so honored to be a part of the NGSA family and I am sooooo excited to be a part of the students’ journey in learning and discovering the route to their dreams.

A motto that I can share with everyone: “It is better to lose a game fighting, than to lose the game without even trying,” in short “KEEP SWIMMING.”
