Hello, my name is Ms. Virtusio and I am the EL Coordinator and ELD teacher this year. This my sixth year at Beverly Hills Unified School District. My educational philosophy is rooted in the African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I believe that schools, families, teachers, and students have a shared responsibility to uphold a quality education. As a teacher, I believe it is my responsibility to foster a culturally responsive classroom where different ideas are shared and valued equally and use student data to drive effective research based instruction. It is the foundation to create a physically and intellectually safe environment for students to feel respected and promote academic, social, and emotional growth. I am excited for our educational year together.
I look forward to working with you and your child. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by email [email protected] or call (310) 229-3675 x6132. Have a wonderful school year!
