About Me

Hello!  My name is Kristen Dedmon and I am thrilled to be joining the Brea Olinda High School family this year as an English teacher and softball coach.  This will be my sixth year teaching and ninth year coaching.  
 
I attended UCLA (sorry, Trojan fans!) where I played for the softball team while earning a double major in Political Science and History and a minor in Environmental Studies.  I am also proud to say that I was a member of the 2004 NCAA National Championship softball team!  
 
As a self-professed Harry Potter, Disney, and musical theater lover, I am a geek to the core.  Additionally, I love to read, cook/bake, crochet and sew, travel, and spend time with my family (including my two cats).  My husband and I are the proud parents of two fur babies, Hamilton and Eliza (names inspired, as you might have guessed it, from the musical).
 
Thank you for stopping by and getting to know a little about me.  I look forward to getting to know all of my students and sharing this journey with each of you!  Go Wildcats!
