About First Grade

Welcome to First Grade! My name is Debbie Jio and I teach the First grade at St. Joseph. of Cupertino. I have been teaching at St. Joseph's for 35 years in Kindergarten and first grade, and I'm also one of the Vice-Principals.. My full-time partner is Rosie Carmona.. Mrs.. Carmona is a credentialed teacher and has been an SJC staff member for nine years. She has aided in Primary Science and Spanish..  She has also taught Spanish at SJC and Kindergarten at St. John the Baptist school.  Mrs. Carmona and I are both SJC Alumni parents.  We feel very privileged to be teaching in this nurturing community, and are very excited to teach your children, as we both love teaching first grade!  We have a wonderful school and are looking forward to a wonderful new year with our new students.

Mission For The Class

We hope to instill a love for learning, especially reading. During this year we will grow tremendously. We will become independent learners and great listeners!
