Welcome to Science Lab at Live Oak.  My name is Sripriya Gopalan and students

from 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will be coming to my lab.  This is my fifth year of teaching

science and I have enjoyed every moment of it!  Prior to my shift in career to teaching,

I was a software engineer and program manager at various technology companies. 

Live Oak is a great school where the staff and students are inspired and motivated to

be the best that they can be.  I feel very fortunate to be a part of this vibrant community.  

Looking forward to another great year!

My name is Kelly Los Banos and I am teaching the science

lab for 1st, 2nd and many 3rd grade classes. This is my 10th

year teaching in San Ramon, and I am proud to have been a part of

Live Oak Elementary since our opening year in 2007. At Live Oak, it has

been my pleasure to work with and learn from amazing colleagues, as I

taught Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades. As I move onto this new adventure

in my teaching career I am grateful to work alongside many of those same

colleagues, as well as teaching many former students! Teaching science is truly a

dream job for me! It is a joy to share my passion for science- wildlife, exploring

nature, geology and a commitment to ecological best practices- with Live Oak students!

My name is Jenica Patel and I am thrilled to be filling in for the science lab for

1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade classes. I graduated with a BA in Psychology from the

University of Oklahoma and am currently finishing up my Multiple Subject Teaching

Credential and MA in Teaching at Brandman University. I completed my student teaching

assignment in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District and am thrilled to be at Live Oak!

I believe that learning is a lifelong journey and I am looking forward to creating many opportunities for students to discover a new side of science.
