About First Grade

Welcome to First grade! My name is Rosie Carmona and this is my third year teaching First grade at St. Joseph of Cupertino. I am a California credentialed teacher with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration. I began my career in education 12 years ago as an aide. I have taught Kindergarten, Spanish, and Seventh grade social studies. Teaching is a passion of mine. I seek the potential in each student and love seeing their academic, social, and emotional growth. We teach the "whole child" making sure to develop their social and behavioral skills in addition to their academic skills. Students will work hard in First grade learning many reading and math strategies and skills. Within our language arts, social studies, and religion lessons, students learn about many life concepts as they develop into independent, responsible learners.

Mrs. Holly O’Boyle is the full-time Aide. We are both SJC Alumni parents. We feel very privileged to be teaching in this nurturing, family-oriented community. We are very excited to teach your children and are looking forward to a fantastic 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!
