Hello Grant Families, 
My name is Paula Cichocka-Teixeira. I am the 7th and 8th grade history teacher and the yearbook adviser. I was born in Poland an came to the United States at the age of 10. Being exposed to different cultures since childhood sparked my interest to study social sciences in college. I earned a History and a Political Science bachelor degrees from University of California, San Diego, as well as a master's degree in Cross-Cultural Education from National University. 
Prior to arriving at Grant I taught at Innovation Middle School. 
During my spare time, if I am not run ragged by my son; I love to read, watch history documentaries, and spend time with my friends and family.
