Dublin Elementary School College Month Welcomes Dublin High Alumni

March 27, 2011

Danee Mitchell is a third grade teacher at Dublin Elementary School and for the past several years has held college month in her classroom. For the past two years, Dublin High School alumni have supported the effort by presenting to her students. Ms. Mitchell daughter Arianna Mitchell (a Dublin High School Class of 2008 graduate) has been instrumental in contacting and arranging guest speakers. Ms. Mitchell has also called on former Dublin Elementary School students.

The Dublin High School alumni that support college month in Ms. Mitchell’s class take time away from their spring break to come in and talk about their experiences in college. Although college is a long way off for Ms. Mitchell’s third grade students, they talk about the Dublin High alumni speakers long after the college students leave.

This year’s Dublin High alumni speakers were:

  • Haley Burgardt, Cal-Poly – Environmental Management and Protection
  • Chris Dyer, UC Davis – Mechanical Engineering
  • Ian Lundberg, San Jose State University – Animation
  • MacKensie Minniear, UC Santa Barbara – Communication/Black Studies
  • Arianna Mitchell, UC Santa Cruz – Bio-Chemistry/Molecular Biology
  • Jamie Somerville, UC San Diego – Nano-Engineering

Jamie Somerville also wrote about his experiences as a freshman at UC San Diego last year as part of’s Life in College Series. Read more…
