About Me

Hello!
 
My name is Ariel Sarver Dukellis and I am an English teacher and English Department Co-Chair at DMHS.  This year, I teach English 2, English 2 ICAP, and I.B. English Language and Literature Year 2.  In addition, I advise the Creative Writing Club, which meets every Friday at lunch in Room 6. 
 
My educational background: I graduated from UC Davis with a double major in English and French and a minor in Linguistics, then earned my Master's of Education at Stanford University.  I started teaching in Campbell Union High School District in the fall of 2012.
 
In my free time, I enjoy playing clarinet with the Cupertino Symphonic Band, reading, traveling with my husband, and knitting.  Ask me about the time I knit and felted a lifesize pumpkin.  
 
My favorite thing about teaching is that every day, every class, with every student is an opportunity to learn something new - I look forward to hearing your stories and helping you develop your own independent voice!
 

"We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."
