About Mrs. B-C
My name is Tina Bozikis-Coccia but students call me Mrs. B-C. I earned my BA and MA from UC Riverside, my teaching credential from Cal Poly, and have been teaching for CVUSD since 1991. I L O V E teaching Kindergarten, have taught it for 20 years, but have also taught 1st, 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. I was born and raised in Southern California, was briefly a professional ballerina, and enjoy any kind of dancing. My husband, Giuseppe (Joe) was born and raised in a small mountain village overlooking the Amalfi coast in Italy, and we visit his family there as often as we are able. We just celebrated our 40th anniversary this summer. We have three children. Austin is a Major in the Air Force. He is a weapons specialist, flew in the F-15, and is stationed in Japan as a training liaison. Brysen and Brittany both graduated from BRE and are both attending Cal Poly Pomona and UCR respectively, and working. Brysen is planning to marry his girlfriend of six years in February.
I am excited to be teaching Kindergarten and hope that my excitement is contagious. My goal is that your child loves logging in to our class and learning. I aspire to foster a sense of responsibility, respect, compassion, pride, and appreciation in our classroom. I have high academic and behavioral expectations. There are many factors that lead to the academic success of children, and parent involvement is key. I look forward to a partnership with you so that together, we can ensure that your child achieves his/her full potential.
