We are excited to welcome Ms. Allie Rose (Nava-Barnes) to our school community, joining us from Downey Unified, where she held a teaching position and was the Assistant Director of the DHS Theatre Department. With a remarkable background in theatre, she also brings extensive technical expertise, curriculum design experience, and a diverse range of training in VAPA, PBL, ELD, STEAM instruction, and conflict resolution. Her educational accomplishments from Long Beach State University include a Bachelors of Arts in Liberal Studies with a Minor in Theatre Arts, a multiple subject credential with ELA authorization, a single subject credential in English Language Arts, and participation in the (ITEP) Teacher Trac Integrated Teacher Education Program. Her positive and enthusiastic approach to integrating theatre into students' lives ensures that the Leal Theatre program will continue to thrive under her inspiring teaching and leadership. We are excited to have her as part of our team.
