About Ms. C and Miss Huscher

About Ms. Coito

  • Most of my personal school experience was through Catholic schools. I attended Sacred Heart Academy (Ocean Beach) and University of San Diego High School (now Cathedral Catholic). I went on to finish my BA in Psychology, my MAT (emphasis in Elementary Education), and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at the University of San Francisco, and finally competed my Mild to Moderate Special Education coursework at the University of Notre Dame.
  • I have taught at St. Vincent’s since 2016. The 2020-2021 school year will mark my eleventh year of lead classroom teaching, but I have been working in classrooms for fifteen years. I have taught every grade from preschool to eighth in some capacity (except First Grade).
  • In my free-time, I love to cook, run, draw & paint, read, and travel.

Mission and Philosophy

Mission Statement

In partnership with parents as the primary educators of their children, St. Vincent de Paul School empowers its students by providing them with a quality Catholic education.
