Dear parents/guardians, 
My name is Ms. Jonalee Cabacungan (Cah-ba-coong-an) and I am elated to be teaching 2nd grade at the O'Farrell Charter School! Born in the Philippines and raised in sunny San Diego, I have always enjoyed working and being around kids. After receiving my Bachelor's degree with a double major at San Diego State University, I worked at O'Farrell as a special ed paraprofessional for almost two years. I went back to school for my teaching credential, taught 4th grade at another school, and eventually found my place back where I first began - here at O'Farrell. This will be my first year teaching at O'Farrell. 
On my spare time, I like to play sports such as tennis and flag football, go to the gym, spend time with my family/friends, travel, and eat all kinds of food.
My plan for 2nd grade is to help my students achieve their personal and academic goals so that they may grow to become successful and responsible citizens in the 21st century. Together, we will persevere and overcome obstacles! 
Here is to a great year! 
For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. 
Thank you for your support.
Ms. Cabacungan
