Name: Terri Cecchine
Grade / Subject: 9-12 (All Subjects) Case Manager
Hours for help: By Appointment
My name is Terri Cecchine . I am an enthusiastic and outgoing person who loves to learn. I currently teach at Bob Forinash Community Day School, where I serve students in the 9th through 12th grades. In the classroom, we strive to offer a community with diverse learning opportunities and a plethora of teaching strategies to engage students in their learning process.
I grew up in South Central Los Angeles, where I attended middle school and high school. I moved around quite a bit and did attend many different schools during this critical time of development. Due to these experiences, I always knew I wanted to work with youth that may have experienced similar things I did.
I was able to successfully graduate high school, and attended UC Santa Barbara where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Chicano Studies, Art Studio and Italian Studies with a minor in Education. From there I was determined to continue to learn and then attended University of San Francisco where I earned a Master’s degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs. With a determination to understand the world around me even more, I am now attending UC Santa Barbara again as a PhD student. I recently earned a second Master’s degree in Adolescent Development and will earn a PhD in Educational access and equity in June 2018. Throughout this academic track, I also received my multiple subject teaching credential from National University.
Currently I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and of course my dogs. I love to be outside, to participate in mixed martial arts and stay as active as possible.
I look forward to working with you!
