I teach 6th grade Science and an Engineering Elective using Project Lead the Way. I love Science, Engineering, and Technology! And I am eager to pass my passion about STEM topics onto my students at Los Coches Creek. I use hands on activities and investigations that engage all learners. Get ready for an exciting year!
My name is Angela Najera. I am an East County native, growing up in Lakeside and El Cajon. I am a Vahalla alumni. I graduated from SDSU with a BA in Liberal Studies and my teaching credentials. I have a multiple subject credential, as well as a single subject credential in Science and a supplemental in English. I have also obtained a Masters in Education.
Between teaching and being a mom of two, I am very busy. My hobbies are gradening, crocheting, and makrame. I absolutely adore all types of plants! My have been currently obsessed with orchids. You will find my classroom has a lot of green things growing. I also love animals. I have 3 cats, lizards, fish, a box turtle, and a snake. I keep my reptiles in the classroom.
I have been teaching for over 10 years. I have taught grades 4 through 8, but middle school grades are my favorite. Before coming to LCC, I taught at Emerald and Greenfield.
I use Google Classroom for assignments and communication to students. I also use Remind, which is a text-based messenger directly to parents. Be watching for codes to come home with your student.
