Adrienne Sidley

Bienvenidos a todos / Welcome to my page! 

This will be my third year teaching at Lake Balboa College Prep.  This year,
I am teaching Spanish (levels 1 & 2) and Advanced English Language Development (ELD) (grades 8 - 12) at LBCP.  I also teach 9th grade homeroom advisory.  I am looking forward to seeing new and old faces this year, and working with all of you!


I am originally from Newport Beach, CA.  I grew up on the beach and enjoyed playing sports like junior lifeguards, swim team, dance, etc.  My favorite things to do are travel and be outside in nature!  


I graduated from Corona del Mar High School and Loyola Marymount University.  I discovered my passion for teaching through volunteering in high school and college.  Before I pursued my career in teaching Spanish, I actually worked in companies where I trained employees, managed the office, planned parties, and assisted the accounting department.


I go by any of the following names: Profesora, Profe, Maestra, Ms. Sidley, Srta. Sidley, Ms. Adrienne

I have high expectations of my students because I know the students at Lake Balboa are extremely capable.
