Hi, my name is Claudia Murillo this will be my 2nd year working at Oasis. I graduated with my AA in 2013 and studied for Medical Administration. After working here I started getting back to my Art skills that I had put to the side. I do most of the decorations for the school and paint with the amazing kids at this school. I will continue working on my education and hopefully get on the road to becoming a Art Teacher. On my free time I like to paint, listen to music, be with family and friends, visit new places and go on adventures. I enjoy being part of the school and bringing out the talent of art in the kids because I know many are very artistic. I enjoy working everyday at Oasis because I learn as much as the kids do.

Reading Intervention instructor- Rosaura
My name is Rosaura Garcia. I was born in Mexicali, Baja California. I love to read, ride bikes, and this summer, I learned how to ride scooters! I am married and have a daughter here at Oasis. What I like the most about being at Oasis is to be with children and learn with them as well. In 1995 I got my B.A in Psychology at the University Autonomous of Baja California. As psychologist I worked in private practice with teenagers and adults for about 10 years, and as teacher for the Office of Education Affairs in Mexico (SEP). I came to the United States in February of 2005, and that year I started learning English at Salinas Adult School. The following year I was taking classes at Hartnell College! Now, I have accomplished my goal of speaking English as my second language (still learning!) and receiving my foreign education equivalency. I'm looking forward to having a Masters Degree. Happy to be here!

Technology Instructor/Yearbook/Leadership- Jacob
My name is Jacob Evans and I was born in a small farm town in Missouri. My passion is to solve technology related issues and find ways to integrate technology into everyday life. Technology can be a student’s greatest tool, and my goal is to make sure that each one can use and understand these tools to be successful. I love comic books, super-heroes, dinosaurs, and cooking. On my weekends you may find me at the farmer’s market or at the dog beach with my fluffy best friend! I love teaching because every day I get a chance to share my knowledge and I each student has something new to teach me!
English Language Development- Lisa
My name is Lisa and this is my first year teaching ELD (English Language Development) here at Oasis. I've taught for 20 years here in the Central Valley at the Elementary and College level. I prefer the Elementary level because students tap into their imaginations more and think 'outside the box' to explore new and inventive ways of solving problems and issues. My vision as an educator is to utilize children's natural talents to develop their English language proficiency in a fun and exciting way (using Science and Social issues as backdrops). I have a passion for Environmental Education, Social Justice, and Animal Advocacy. Come visit me in the Puffer fish room. Aloha, Lisa :-)
