Hi! My name is Selena Stewart and I teach 7th and 8th grade History for the Film And Media Magnet.
I am originally from Connecticut, and I have been living in California since 2001. I attended Central Connecticut State University where I obtained my teaching degree in Social Sciences. In 2006, I went through the rigorous process of earning my National Board Certification. Then, I attended Cal State Los Angeles where I earned a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction and my thesis focused on the impact of technology in the classroom.
I am very excited to be integrating filmmaking into my curriculum and I strongly believe in the interpersonal as well as academic skills that it develops in our students.
If you have questions about your child's grade, please log in to Jupiter Grades to see their status. I accept late work (for half credit) for all assignments until 2 weeks before the semester ends. I do not allow students to re-do assignments they scored low on.
Please feel free to email me with any questions or concerns.
