Hello OMI Family,
I am Mrs. Guariglia or as my students call me, Mrs. G. I am an English teacher here at Oakland Military Institute. I have been working here since 2018 and love the community here at OMI. A little bit about me, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York but have been traveling back and forth from the east to the west for most of my adult life. Eventually, setting up roots here in the Bay Area in 2013. My passion for Education began when I had my first job out of college as a corporate trainer. I knew right then and there that educating young minds was what I was destined to do.
With that goal, I decided to go back and obtain my degree in English education and there began my work within the school system. I started working in an Elementary school but knew all along that I wanted to be with older grades. So I went back to school to obtain my Masters of Education and my English credential in Secondary Education. My passion and love for reading has inspired my love of English. In my class the students will learn about the great authors in history. They can experience authors from the Transcendentalist movement to the Harlem Renaissance. They will have the opportunity to explore the books, music, culture, art and movies from the ages. I am very excited to be here at OMI and share my passion of all the great works from our history.
