1st Grade Lead Teacher
Ms. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Ventura is a passionate, energetic educator who joined the CWC family in 2019. Ever since she was in elementary school herself, she has been dreaming of her own classroom – a dream that came true at CWC! Lizzie is happy to have found a school community that embraces her belief in hands-on, inclusive learning with an emphasis on social-emotional development. As a teacher, she will make it her number one priority to build excellent rapport with each and every student in her classroom.
Lizzie is an East Coast native hailing from the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts. She earned a Master of Education/Massachusetts Teaching License from Lesley University, which she later transferred to obtain a California Multiple Subject Teaching Credential with an English Learner Authorization. During her professional career back home, Lizzie served as a special education paraprofessional responsible for IEP service delivery as well as planning and implementing modified curricula.
In her spare time, Lizzie enjoys reading, singing, attempting to play the piano, hiking, biking, traveling, watching football (go Giants!), and spending time with loved ones – especially her fiancé, Spencer, and her French Bulldog, Kobe!
