Ms. Cruz


Hello Sierra Vista families,

My name is Ariela Cruz and I am so excited to return as Sierra Vista's 7th grade Math teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. This is my sixth year in education and I've had the opportunity to spend 5/6 of my years teaching Mathematics.

In 2016, I graduated from CSU Chico with a Bachelor's in Liberal Studies and a concentration in Mathematics. In 2017, I completed the CSUC Multiple Subject credential program.

Someone once said, " Mathematics is not only for solving numbers. It's also for dividing sorrow, subtracting sadness, adding happiness, and multiplying love and forgiveness." I love this quote because along with teaching our students Math, I hope to teach/remind them of the importance of creating not only a classroom but also a world filled with hope, respect, and resilience. In addition, I believe that a Math class should be filled with collaboration, hard work, joy, hands on experiences, mistakes, solutions, diverse thought, and growth!

Outside of the classroom, I love to create memories with family/ friends, read books, sing, swim, camp, travel, go to church, and spend time in nature.

Thank you for partnering with me in creating a wonderful year for our students!

Here's to a wonderful year,

Ariela Cruz
