Mrs. Vanessa Annaguey Aranda

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

I'm an Inland Empire local and creative soul who is committed to social justice, equity, and flexible learning. 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 worked in public education for 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 and, student-run online newspapers in Redlands, and on the team of advisors of Students for Change.

I look forward to learning together!
