My name is Anita Aghamanoukian; you may call me Ms. A. I have been teaching English Language Arts for 11 years. This is my second year at O'Farrell. I grew up in Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley. I love living in San Diego! I also love traveling, reading, running, going to the beach, and spending time with my 2 adorable nephews.
I graduated from California State University, Northridge with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Studies. I received my Master's Degree in Education and Teaching Credential from Pepperdine University. My educational background and professional experience has given me the strength to instill a love of literacy for my middle school students. The different genres in literature are fascinating because students can learn life lessons from the characters in the stories and apply creativity in their writing/projects.
I am looking forward to the 2018-2019 school year with my O'Farrell family and students. Good luck, everyone!
I'm in Room #113 -- stop by anytime! :)
