• Greetings, students and parents!

    I'm so excited to join the amazing staff at Altadena this year! Students can expect to learn a TON of history and geography this year in a fun and engaging way.

    About me: two years ago, my family (husband, son, and daughter) and I moved here from Washington State, where I had lived my entire life. We're still adjusting to the heat, but we're very happy that we ended up in Ahwatukee! I earned my bachelor's degree in political science/social studies education from Western Washington University, and my master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Lesley University. This will be my 19th year of teaching middle school.

    I look forward to a fantastic year of working with our newest Altadena Panthers!

    Mrs. De Klyen
