Mrs. Fama Knipp

I have taught at Oak View Elementary School for the past 18 years.  I began in 5th grade, then moved to 4th grade for 11 years, 3rd grade for 5 years, and now I am back teaching 4th grade.  I have to say that I do love teaching 4th grade!  Prior to coming to Oak View, I was a special education instructional aide in the Huntington City School District.  When I decided to go back to school to become a teacher, it was my hope that I would be hired to work at Oak View.  I was very lucky to have my dreams come true!

I am originally from West Texas, born in Odessa, and have lived in California for many years now.  I graduated from El Modena High School in Orange and then went on to college at Santa Ana Junior College and then CSULB.  I have lived in Huntington Beach since 1983 and have 2 sons, Kevin and Corbin.  I enjoy spending my time working in my garden and doing home improvement projects.
