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.
