Hello! I am Ms. Yamasaki, and this will be my 9th year as an educator. I am a proud Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary alum, and also attended Mayfield Senior School. I have a B.A. in Music from Occidental College and a Teaching Credential and M.A. in Education from Loyola Marymount University. Prior to teaching, I spent 7 years in the foodservice industry, opening and managing several top-rated L.A. restaurants. When I realized I wanted to do something more meaningful, I answered the call to become a teacher. As a product of Catholic schools, I am highly aware of the value of a Catholic education.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, dancing, reading, going to Disneyland, and cheering on the San Francisco Giants.
