Shore Acres isn’t just a school; it’s a community. These kids struggle through homelife adversities, state testing ambiguities and school district apathy. But they never stop learning. The teachers and administration volunteer their time and resources creating programs to feed minds, bodies and souls. I’m so proud of our Super Sharks!
I am a Teacher at Shore Acres Elementary School and I am so proud to be a Super Shark! In the classroom we are dedicated to support all of our learners! We are dedicated to restorative practices, community circles, PBIS practices, 21st Century skills, academic rigor, academic achievement and intervention!Our expectations of students and Staff are clear: be responsible, be respectful and be safe. In my experience working at Shore Acres when my students have had issues with bullying I have always been able to speak with Administration and colleagues and that always has resulted in helping all parties involved to restore harm and all parties are given support in long term ways! We have many programs at Shore Acres including Peacemakers (conflict management program) , Student Council, Thrilling Thursday (weekly morning runs) and running programs during and after school. These programs enrich our students lives, allow them to have a voice and empower them to be learners inside and outside of the classroom!I will restate, I am so proud to be a teacher at Shore Acres Elementary School! Go Super Sharks!Sincerely,Mrs.HamachiNote: We have a one star rating. I am in disbelief that our school would have 1 star rating. Then I reviewed the rating system of greatschools.org.As I reflect on these ratings I would like to point out a few things. Achievement gap is a construct to blame low income students for their lack of resources. It is saying"if you would just achieve everything would be okay!" That is not true! We as citizens need to vote to fund schools and education so that students all over our country no matter what neighborhood they live in will have resources for their learning. State Testing does not measure learning adequately. We cannot solely rely on that as a measure of learning outcomes for our students. "Test scores for low income students at this school fall far below the state average for all students."When comparing our low income students to all students in our state one has missed a key issue; these low income students do not have the same resources as all the students in our State. We need to fund education so that we can provide these resources to all students in our state. It is not our low income students fault that they are low income. Their existence should not be rated! Thank you!
I loved volunteering at Shore Acres. The staff I interacted with were aware of the impact they had on their students and acted accordingly, and the children were incredibly welcoming and sweet. I would love to volunteer here again.
I have been a teacher at Shore Acres for the past 9 years, and my experiences have been incredibly rewarding. Before coming to Shore Acres, I had already taught at multiple schools throughout the Bay Area, both affluent, middle income, and low income, and nothing compares to working here. Shore Acres has been described as a "hidden gem" because it is tucked away in a close-knit community in Bay Point. The families care about their children's future, and the staff at Shore Acres work closely with the community to ensure a culturally and linguistically rich academic experience for students to become college and career ready. We genuinely care about each individual student's well-being, and we work together to do whatever it takes to learn! I can say with complete honesty that I wake up every morning happy and excited to teach the students at Shore Acres. My colleagues share my passion for making a difference, too. I am reminded everyday why I chose to be a teacher when I look into the faces of these bright students.
