The 4th Grade Teachers

Mrs. Braga

Hi, my name is Holly Braga. I am so excited to take part in another fun and exciting year in 4thGrade!  I moved to California from Montana in 1999 and have spent most of my years teaching 4th grade. In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband, Rey, and my 3 children, Brayden, Emma and Jax.  I love watching sports of any kind.  I also love to cook and enjoy trying new recipes.  I am excited to see what adventures unfold this year!

Ms. Fredrickson

Welcome to another wonderful year at Hidden Hills!  I was born and raised in San Ramon and am very happy to be teaching in the same district where I attended school.  Teaching is something that I have wanted to do since I was little; and I feel extremely lucky to be working with such a kind, caring, and supportive community!   In my free time, I enjoy being with my daughter and doing activities around town.  I also love to read, golf, shop, and travel.

 Ms. Gallegos

Welcome to 4th Grade! My name is Ms. Gallegos (Guy-yay-goes). I grew up in the Central Valley and came to the Bay Area to attend UC Berkeley. I loved it so much I decided to stay. After Cal, I received my teaching credential from CSU Monterrey Bay. I have been teaching for 10 years and I have to say I absolutely love teaching.
In my spare time, I love to go on road trips with my daughters. Our goal is to visit all 50 states before they graduate from high school. Just 38 more to go. 

I am looking forward to a wonderful year with my fabulous fourth graders! 

Mrs. Vela


My name is Lisa Vela. I was born on the East Coast, but grew up here in San Ramon, a place that I am proud to call home. After high school, I moved to San Francisco to attend San Francisco State University, where I received both my Bachelor’s degree and my teaching credential. In my free time, I love to spend time with my husband and two children.  I am thrilled to be a part of the Hidden Hills community. I am honored to work with such an amazing staff, and such dedicated students and parents. I believe in providing all students with the opportunity to learn in an atmosphere that allows them to celebrate their unique talents, and allows them to challenge themselves and take risks in a safe and comfortable environment.
