Welcome students & families!

My name is Xochitl Dueñas and I teach English 4 & ELD 4 here at Pittsburg High School!

I grew up just over the hills in Concord and earned my B.A. in English & Art History at the University of California Santa Barbara in 2015. Like many of us, I had no idea what I wanted to be when I grew up. After graduating from college, I chose the "responsible" route of starting a career in business to explore and gain some professional work experience. After three years of growth and professional development, I still found myself questioning, “Did anything I accomplished today really matter?”. The answer was always no… until I was brought to teaching!

My goal for students this year is to make serious strives towards finding their voice, no matter the occasion, environment, or task. My goal is to help them obtain the academic language needed to succeed in both school and their future adult lives. However, it’s as equally important to me that students reflect on their lived experience and honor it by owning something nobody will ever be able to take away from them—the truth that is their voice.

All else aside, I genuinely look forward to getting to know each student throughout the year. It is with their collaborative brilliance that we will create a safe space for everyone to feel comfortable learning and growing.
