She plays the djembe, loves mac and cheese, and teaches algebra at San Mateo High. Who is this teacher? Ms. Melissa Kamura, of course.

Ms. Kamura grew up in a city Southern California called Victorville. There she went to Silverado High School where she spent time playing basketball and softball, and even enjoyed rapping. After her high school years, Ms. Kamura attended Stanford University and studied Mechanical Engineering.

She’s intrigued by the patterns and many ways to solve a problem in math. Ms. Kamura loves being an algebra teacher. Her favorite thing about teaching is her students get into math arguments.

“I like working with the students. Students here are awesome,” said Ms. Kamura.

During her free time, Ms. Kamura takes care of children as a volunteer in Santa Cruz. She also recently began learning to play the djembe, an African drum, as well as a little bit of guitar and ukelele. Ms. Kamura also has some experience in DJing and DJed at her friends baby shower and wedding.

“Ms. Kamura is an awesome teacher and is really helpful. I’ve learned a lot so far this year,” said Alison Coyle, a sophmore.
