Welcome to the World's Greatest Junior High School where Every Story Matters!
If you are looking for Ms. Vera-Mineer's Website, you are in the right place! It's so great to see YOU! I am looking forward to having you in the World's Greatest Classroom with me-Your World's Greatest Teacher! You know what that means? You are expected to be the World's Greatest Student! I expect you to give me your very best every day! That each day is an opportunity to be better today than we were yesterday. You will be in an environment where you will be challenged, you may make mistakes, and sometimes you might even fail, BUT we learn from the mistakes. Then, when we know better, we will do better! I believe in you!
I love Canyon Hills and so will you! I've taught here my entire career and will begin my 32nd year of teaching! Time flies when you love what you do! I grew up in Pomona attending St. Madeleine's Catholic School from 1st-8th grade, and attended Pomona Catholic High School. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Behavioral Science, a minor in Dance, and a Social Science Teaching Credential from Cal Poly Pomona. Go Broncos! I also have a Masters in Dance Education from Cal State Long Beach. Go Beach!
I'm a proud mom of twin sons who graduated from Cal State Long Beach in May 2022. Both earned degrees in the Music Department. Myles was a Vocal major, where he sang in the Chamber Choir and Jazz & Tonic-a Jazz Accapella Group. Max was a Jazz Studies major and he played the trombone in the Studio Jazz Band.
In my spare time, Vinnie and I enjoy traveling, especially being outdoors-kayaking and fishing. We love to listen to live music and go dancing. I love to read and Jazzercise too. Spending time with family and friends makes me happy! Hope to learn what you like to do in your spare time! That's it for now... We will learn more about each other's stories throughout the year. Hope you are ready to be inspired, to have fun, and to learn!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! HAPPY NEW YOU!!
