Mrs. Vanessa Aranda

Hello and welcome! My name is Vanessa Annaguey Aranda and I'm excited to be joining the Orangewood team this year!

I'm an Inland Empire local with a creative soul who enjoys being outdoors. Born in San Bernardino, I graduated from Redlands High School, UC Riverside (B.A. Ethnic Studies and Sociology) and Claremont Graduate University (M.A. Education). I've been in education for almost 20 years, starting as a bilingual community aide in Fontana and teaching middle school through adult school in San Bernardino, Yucaipa, and Redlands districts.

My goal is to make learning inclusive and engaging and find that technology can be a great unifier. I'm the proud advisor of Ethic News and La Plaza Press, the student-run and bilingual online newspapers, and on the team of advisors of Students for Change.
