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.

I'm the proud advisor of Ethic News, a student-run online newspaper in RUSD, and on the team of advisors of Students for Change.

I look forward to learning together!
