2016 Homestead Teacher & Staff of the Year

Congratulations to Paco Arevalo and Monica Knott, Homestead's Certificated and Classified Employee of the Year, respectively.

Monica Knott has worked as a paraeducator at Homestead since 2006. She is an active member of the School Site Council, which provides leadership to the overall operations of the school. Her positive attitude, caring ways and calm manner are a real asset and she models for others the importance of commitment and dedication to a job well done. 

Paco Arevalo joined Homestead in 2001 and has taught every level of Spanish offered at HHS in his time since then, including Spanish 1,2,3,4,5, AP Spanish, and Spanish for native speakers. Paco especially appreciates the variety that being a teacher provides, including teaching students and developing dynamic and varied curriculum and activities, and seeing former students and learning more about their lives and passions. He views teaching as a symbiotic relationship with his students and their engagement propels and expands his own.
