Ms. Shamira Gratch

I have been a Lincoln High School teacher since 2002. I have an MA in literature from Mills College, an MA degree in Education from SFSU, a CLAD teaching credential from SFSU and a B.A. in Literature and Women’s Studies from the University of California of Santa Cruz. Prior to teaching I worked doing book and art restoration. I also traveled throughout Europe and South America.

 I enjoy the creative challenges of teaching and learning. I am enthusiastic about teaching because I love to learn, and I love to learn with and from my students. I hope in my class, you begin to understand how to read, write and think in a more thoughtful and expressive way.
