Second Grade

Van Schafer

Hello, my name is Van Schafer. This will be my first year teaching at Bahia Vista and I couldn't be more excited about the opportunity to be here.  I recently relocated to Marin County by way of San Francisco.  For the past 6 years, I taught first and second grade in the Mission District. As a teacher, I believe in teaching students to have a growth mindset and that any goal can be achieved through hard work and dedication.  My classroom places an emphasis on collaboration and student learning through academic and social growth.  I received my teaching credential from Sacramento State, but my learning did not stop there.  I consider the profession of teaching as a life long learning process.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy playing golf, traveling, and hanging out with my nieces and nephew.
