Hello and Welcome!

Hello and Welcome! I am so excited to be able to work with each of you this year at O’Farrell and I know that we are going to have an excellent class! This will be my fourth year at O'Farrell and I will be teaching English 9 CP and Honors and AVID 10/11 and 11/12, as well as being our school's AVID Coordinator.

A little about my background… I was born and raised in San Diego and graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a degree in Literature and Cultural Studies. I have also been awarded my Single Subject Credential in English with a Specific Subject Matter Authorization in Literature along with my Masters of Education in Teaching.

Being an English teacher, I love literature. It has been and continues to be a huge factor in my life. Some of my favorite authors are: Ray Bradbury, John Steinbeck, and Kurt Vonnegut. In addition, I am immensely passionate about AVID and encouraging my students to reach their full potential. Ahh-vid!!

I also love plants, The Beatles, being outside, spending time with my family and friends, and watching football- Go Chargers!

All of my students should leave school knowing that they can truly make a difference in the world and that they have the power and ability to achieve greatness.

Feel free to contact me any time by email (laura.dinanno@ofarrellschool.org), call the class (619-263-3009 x5501), or stop by in Room 5010.

Here’s to a great year! ♥
