About Me!

Dear Students,

I'm so excited to begin my 15th year teaching at Buchser with you. This year has already gotten off to an amazing start and I am thrilled to be your teacher.

I originally grew up in Fremont and graduated from Mission San Jose High School in 1998. I went to UC Santa Cruz and graduated with Honors with a BA in Sociology and a minor in Legal Studies in 2001. I spent some time teaching within SCUSD as a substitute and summer school teacher, then returned to UC Santa Cruz to earn my Masters in Teaching and my teaching credentials in 2004. I recently earned my California Administrative Services Credential through the Leaders in Educational Administration Program in 2014. 

I was hired at Buchser in 2004 and began as a Math and Language Arts teacher. I love teaching here and haven't gone anywhere because I love the teachers and the students here!

I have a wonderful husband who is the principal of Montague Elementary in Santa Clara. I also have two awesome kids: Summer is 9 and Zayan is 7. They occupy pretty much all of my time outside of school these days, but I love to travel internationally. So far, I've been to over 20 different countries in Eastern and Western Europe, Asia, and Central America. My favorite countries to visit so far are Spain, Germany, Turkey, and Thailand. With two little guys, I can't take many plane trips though, so you'll find my camping and taking road trips with my kids on weekends. :) I am in the middle of reading the Harry Potter series for the first time and I'm currently slightly obsessed. To no one's surprise, I'm a Ravenclaw. 

I am so fortunate to be working with you this year and I look forward to getting to know you all better!


Ms. Lindsey Ahrary
