Welcome back for the 2017-2018 school year!

I'm fresh off a summer in Indonesia and Malaysia and excited to bring a global perspective, and island joy, to my classes this year. I'll be working with the juniors taking AP Language and Composition, seniors in the ERWC, and all grade levels in my Photojournalism elective. Photojournalism will continue to publish The Kaleidoscope, our high school newspaper; please submit art, writing, photography, and ideas to Room 5000.

My background...

I was born and raised in San Diego and completed my undergraduate degree at University of Southern California. However, my degree in Business Administration never inspired or excited me. When I started my teaching credential program I knew I was on a path that would challenge and energize me every day. It is my passion to help students find their strengths, using those to pursue college and career paths that enrich and inspire.

I live for travel, USC football, and breakfast burritos. I am easiest to reach through email: chantal.blakeney@ofarrellschool.org and encourage visitors in room 5000. Cheers to an amazing year!
