• Greetings, students and families!

    I'm so thrilled to be at Altadena for a second year! Students can expect to learn a TON of history and geography this year in a fun and engaging way, whether online, in person, or both.

    About me: three 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 are 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 20th year of teaching middle school.

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

    Mrs. De Klyen
