Greetings, class! My name is Ms. Calderon. I was born and raised in West Covina, California. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Literary Journalism from UC Irvine in 2010. In February 2011 I spent a year in Korea teaching English and writing about local Korean culture. I completed my teaching credential at California State University, Fullerton while student teaching at Walnut High School. This is my third year teaching with Alliance CRMA No. 5. As a teacher my first priority is to see my students succeed. I want to provide a positive learning environment where students can actively participate and contribute to class discussions. I am looking forward to a fantastic first semester!
