Isabel Sandoval

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.
