Hello my name is Quincy Barnes and I am a fourth grade teacher at Hawking 2 STEAM Charter School. I was born and raised in Fresno, California. I moved to San Diego to attend the University of San Diego. After graduating with a Bachelors Degree, I earned my Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and a multiple subject teaching credential. In my free time, I love to run along the beach, hike, and travel.
I am so thrilled to be at Hawking 2 this year. I am eager to design projects for my kiddos and immerse them in the wonderful world of STEAM. I am passionate in my commitment to two specific things: inspiring students’ love of learning and instilling a sense of self-worth among all students. I hope to guide my students emotionally, encourage them academically, and demand from them hard work and a can-do attitude. It’s going to be a great year with my fourth graders.
Hello my name is Brooke Coppa and I am a 4th grade teacher here at Hawking 2! I was born and raised right here in San Diego. I was fortunate enough to go to the University of San Diego where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Communications as well as my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.
I am so excited to come to work every day at a school with an emphasis on project based and STEAM curriculum. I have been a part of the charter school world since I started teaching and I love the sense of community we are able to build with our students. My goal as an educator is to create a nurturing and safe learning environment while attending to the individual needs of my students. I look forward to the year ahead with my wonderful students here at Hawking 2!

My name is Hanna Liberson and I am a very excited to be joining the fourth-grade team at Hawking 2! I am originally from Virginia but have been living in San Diego for the past four years. I graduated from Hendrix College with a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and then earned my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, as well as my Master of Arts in Teaching with an emphasis in Language Arts, from San Diego State University. This will be my second year at Hawking STEAM Charter 2 and I have worked in numerous educational roles over the past six years. Outside of teaching, I love baking, gardening, going to the beach, and traveling! I am eager to facilitate your child’s educational journey! I love creating a collaborative environment where students are thinking critically and learning together. I am especially thrilled to do this at a STEAM school because I believe it offers ample opportunities for students to engage in interdisciplinary learning, cultivate leadership skills, and develop a lifelong passion for learning.
