Faculty & Staff Profiles

Brenda Bhaskar

Titles: Grade 5 Teacher Assistant
Degrees: B.A., Human Communications, CSU Monterey Bay

I love helping the students, hearing their thoughts and challenges, and laughing and being silly with them.

Mrs. Bhaskar started with Santa Catalina as a PreK parent in 1994. Her three children, Lizzy, Brian, and Emma, would all go on to graduate from the Lower and Middle School. She has been a frequent substitute teacher, a volunteer in the PreK classroom, and an assistant teacher in Grade 4, and she currently runs our after-school Study Buddies class. The native New Yorker also had a career as a court reporter in Florida and Monterey. She enjoys reading, hiking, and gardening.
