B.A Child and Adolescent Development Moderate-Severe Special Education Credential
My name is Isabel Sandoval; I am a Special Education teacher for the Oakmont High School Adult Transition Program. My teaching career began in 2015, but I have been in the field since 2001. I started as a paraeducator in an elementary school, then became a behavior technician. The journey to obtaining my credential was long, yet I enjoyed every minute of it and learned so much along the way!
Teaching means so much to me, it has a special place in my heart. I have two older siblings with disabilities and I understand the importance of being provided with many meaningful learning opportunities; because of that, I care deeply about each of my students. I knew I wanted to be a special education teacher early in life (as early as 3rd grade!). Every year I learn so much and consider myself lucky to be able to work in the field!
I was born and raised in San Jose; I moved to Roseville in 2019 and have enjoyed this new chapter of my life. I do miss being close to the beach though! I obtained my bachelor's degree in Child and Adolescent development and Moderate/ Severe Special Education Credential at San Jose State University... Go Spartans!
When I am not teaching, I spend my time with my sons Quetzalcoatl and Xiuhcoatl, and my siblings, Juanita and Javier. We LOVE going to museums and zoos. I also enjoy reading and scrapbooking. This summer I was able to travel outside of California for a few conferences and realized that I really enjoy visiting new places.
