Hello!! My name is Mrs. Gamboa, I am your child's 6th or 7th Grade Art or Design teacher. I have been teaching at Chavez Middle School for 5 years. Below you will find a little information about myself and my education as well as some information about our program here at Chavez!

My educational career has been quite extensive, I like to consider myself a life long learner, inside about outside of the classroom. I graduated from Victor Valley High School in Victorville. I then attended Cal State San Bernardino where I graduated with two Bachelors Degrees in Graphic Design and Photography in 2008. I went back for my Masters in Education, Digital Teaching and Learning at Azusa Pacific University where I graduated in 2014. I then jumped into the Masters of Fine Arts program and graduated with my MFA in 2018. 

Outside of school I am a Mother to a 6th grader and Step-Mom to a 23 year old. I am a Girls High School Water Polo Coach at Alta Loma High School, and a coach with Rancho Tsunami Water Polo Club. I am photographer, and a handmade maker in addition to the art that I make as a student. I have 2 cats, which the students loved! Their names are Sprinkles and Stormie.
