Sharon Coffee

Hi, I'm Sharon Coffee and this is my (hopefully LUCKY) 13th year teaching and my 5th year teaching here at Concord High.  Before that I taught 8 years at my old high school, a small private school called Liberty Christian School, in Southern California.  This year I will be teaching 4 sections of English III and 1 section of AP Language & Composition.

 

My hope is that each student looks forward to walking into English class and that when they walk out they feel like they’ve been challenged in their reading, and writing, and speaking abilities.  Most importantly, my desire is that by the end of the course, the student actually enjoys writing tasks…..or at least no longer fears or dreads them, because they can more confidently write with some of the tricks I’ve given them.

 

I am so blessed to be a part of the school’s Human Services Academy and each year I get to teach 2 sections of Academy Junior English. I am also honored to serve as one of Concord High’s English department chairs, alongside Ms. Dell.  Throughout some of my years at CHS I have had the opportunity to work as a cooperating teacher for Saint Mary’s student teaching placement program; Ms. Jensen and Ms. Morgado were once my student teachers and now I am so lucky to get to work alongside them here at CHS!

 

I was born and raised in Southern California (Huntington Beach) and am STILL getting used to living up here in northern California. My husband is also a teacher in the MDUSD school district and gets to teach 4th graders at Shore Acres Elementary.  I’ve always known that I wanted to be a teacher; I love what I do and I am lucky to be able to call it a job. I graduated from Cal State Long Beach with both my Bachelor of Arts in English Education and my Teaching Credential.

 

Finally, I help run the school’s Writing Center – a place students can visit during advisory to get some help on any kind of writing assignment for any class.  I hope to see each and every student in The Writing Center this year!

Student Teacher - Ms. Dueñas

Hello!

My name is Xochitl Dueñas and I have the privilege to be back at Concord High for the start of my journey in becoming an educator! (Shout out Ms. Coffee for agreeing to take me under her wing!) A little about me:

  • I am a Minutemen alumna - c/o of 2011!
  • UC Santa Barbara graduate (2015) - B.A. English & Art History
  • Currently enrolled at St. Mary's College pursuing my single subject teaching credential for English & M.A. in Education

Although I thought my life-chapter at Concord High was closed and complete, I am so thrilled to be back at this school now with a different lens and more to learn!

Thank you!

Ms. Dueñas
