Welcome to Fifth Grade!
About Wendy Bevilacqua
My name is Wendy Bevilacqua and I am thrilled to be one of the fifth grade teachers this year at St. Jerome. I was born and raised in Seattle and attended Catholic schools from kindergarten through high school. I then attended the University of Washington where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and a Teaching Certificate in K-8 Elementary Education with an additional endorsement in 4-12 History and Social Studies. Recently, I have acquired my CA State Multiple Teaching Credential.
Since moving to the Bay Area two years ago with my husband and two children, we have been enjoying all of the sights, sounds and tastes that this amazing area has to offer. I feel blessed that the St. Jerome community is now a part of my new life here in California.
I am looking forward to a great year filled with high expectations and a positive learning environment where each child can thrive academically, socially and spiritually.
