Ms. Hara Fineberg

I was born in Tuscon, Arizona and grew up in a little country town known as Bluefield, Virginia. I attended both Bluefield College and the University of Alabama and graduated with a degree in English Education.  Because of my passion for education, I went on to pursue a M.A. in Administration and Supervision as well as a M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction.  I absolutely love teaching, and I truly believe that every student has the ability to achieve academic success.  My teaching philosophy is cemented from my 23 years of experience in the belief that one, "must teach" the whole child.  Students can only achieve academic greatness when they feel respected, safe, happy, and loved.  The most powerful influence on a child's education is access to a strong support system, both home and at school.  It is such an honor to be part of the "Champion Family."  This is my seventh year at Cesar Chavez and I am so happy to be a member of such an accomplished staff and an amazing school.


"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.  Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education."
