    Get to know Mrs. Filgas:
    I began studying education at UC Davis, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Human Development. Following graduation, I had a brief stint in the corporate world but left to teach preschool. I then went back to school to earn my teaching credential. After a couple of years in the classroom, I became a student again. I hold a masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialty in Educational Technology from California Lutheran University. In 2010, I earned a Specialized Studies Certificate in Gifted and Talented Education Instruction from UC Irvine. A few years ago, I completed the Educational Leadership program at CSUCI and earned my Adminstrative Services credential.

    I joined the Santa Rosa family in 1999 as a 4th grade teacher. After several years at that grade, I made the big move to 5th grade and have been teaching it ever since. My own personal family includes my husband, Dave, and our 3 children; Lindsay (20), Michael (17), and Jennifer (14). In my few spare moments between teaching and home, I enjoy brain games and shopping online....especially for shoes! I believe everything is better with frosting.
