Hi! I'm Cheryl Marelich, a teacher in Menlo Park City School District for many years. I have been teaching in Hillview for a couple of years, in the Acceleration reading program and RtI program, supporting English Language Learner students. Prior to that I taught at Oak Knoll Elementary for many years. I was born in Redwood City, and still continue to live there with my husband and two children. My daughter is in college and my son is just finishing high school. I am an avid gardener and love being outdoors walking my dogs. I absolutely love teaching middle school and am so glad I finally got to "graduate" out of elementary school! Middle school is such a special time where children are finding their passions that may drive the rest of their lives. Such an exciting time!
