Ms. Chiriboga is in her sixth year of teaching high school English. Studying English has always been a passion of Ms. Chiriboga’s; she majored in the subject at both California State University – Los Angeles for her undergraduate degree, and at the University of Southern California, where she received her master’s degree in 2013. Her love of English was sparked early on in life; while in 6th grade, she embarked on the magical journey that is the Harry Potter series. Coincidentally, the love of writing also ignited in 6th grade, when she was awarded “Best Essay” on a D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) writing prompt. She was awarded a calculator as a prize. Said calculator sadly no longer works, but her love of words and ideas continue to flow every day in her classroom. She loves her students and is incredibly proud to be a teacher at Sotomayor Arts and Sciences Magnet.
