Faculty & Staff
Betty Hsue
7th-8th Grade Teacher
Many of you might be familiar with Betty Hsue; she’s not a stranger to our campus. She taught here for more than 19 years, when she retired to help care for her father who had cancer. Over the years since her retirement she has frequently volunteered at our school both in long term and short term teaching positions, and she continues to hold a valid California teaching credential.  After many years teaching in both the private and public school arena she currently substitutes for our school and she is a blessing we do not deserve but so overwhelmingly appreciate.
