Angela Del Deo (MA, 2010) Gets into Her Work

Angela Del Deo (MA Education, 2010) has not had much rest since completing her Master’s Thesis, Unraveling Female Adolescence: Meeting the Emotional, Social and Psychological Needs of Adolescent Girls (see the “Abstract Corner”) . A proud mother of three lively children and a credentialed teacher, Angela has been involved in and out of the classroom with programs that inspire and empower adolescent girls and young women. She created the Epoxy Education Project in conjunction with Just Communities and Thrive and taught programs at Mckinley and Harding schools. She has taught classes to children on behalf of the National Charity League, a national girl’s organization committed to building self-esteem among adolescent girls. As an intervention specialist, she works with high and low functioning students at Canalino Elementary School. In addition to teaching math and reading classes, Angela has been able to integrate her love for movement by developing children’s introductory dance and yoga classes at La Cumbre Jr. High, Adalante, El Camino, Montecito Union, and Cold Springs schools. In 2011, Angela had the amazing opportunity to visit Uganda with the Community Action Fund for Women in Africa (CAFWA) and teach FAL instructors (Functional Adult Literacy) teaching methods using Gardner’s teaching methodology (pictured). With the little time left after parenting and teaching, Angela can be found hiking the local trails and skating along Cabrillo and Shoreline Park.
