Welcome

  • Greetings!

    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! 

    About Me:

    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.

    Parent Communication:

    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.    

    Please contact me if you have questions or concerns. Email is best. : )
