About Me

Hi & welcome to 2nd grade!  My name is Mrs. Borja. (If you're curious, my husband & in-laws always have our last name pronounced 'Bor-juh'.)  I am excited to be your child's teacher this school year! 
I graduated with my undergraduate degree from UCLA, and afterwards received my teaching credential from Sacramento State.  This will be my tenth year teaching, my sixth year teaching 2nd grade, and my third year with John Adams Academy.
I grew up in Sacramento, and now live in El Dorado Hills with my husband and two small boys--who I am absolutely in love with.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy cooking, baking, and spending time with my family.
I look forward to getting to know your child and your family this school year!
