Hi! My name is Ms. Noboa! I am 27 yeas young! I live in Clermont with my son Giovanni. I enjoy running & being with friends and family. I will be your child’s 5th grade ELA/Social Studies teacher for the 2021-2022 school year & I am excited to make this the best year yet!

I was born in Oceanside, California but spent most of my childhood in Jacksonville, North Carolina.  My father was a U.S. Marine, and we moved around quite a bit.  I have two brothers, one older, and one younger! And I guess Ms. Gaje is considered my sister.
