Hello my name is Gladys Chaidez. I am a Visual Arts teacher at Paloma Valley High School. I have been an educator at Paloma since 2014, and I can't believe it's been 5 years, time truly does fly by. I have a Bachelors degree in Art Education from Cal State San Bernardino, before teaching high school I spent some time working in the commercial industry as a photographer and a short time teaching Elementary School Art. I love encouraging students to dream and believe in themselves and the wonderful things they can achieve. I am very proud of the work and progress students make in our time together, and every year is a new adventure.
I will be teaching Art I (Periods 1,4,5,6, & 7) and Art II (Periods 2 & 3). We will be using Google Classroom as the online platform for all classes, students will have access to add the class through Canvas.
This year we are all navigating through uncharted territory and I commit to treating each student with compassion and empathy, I am here to support our community through Arts Education.
Please email me if you have any questions at any time throughout this year.
