My name is Angelique Gianas and I am in my third year of teaching English at Helix Charter High School. My passion lies in creating meaningful relationships and engaging experiences for my students in the classroom. I grew up in the beautiful city of San Diego, CA and never left! I received my BA in English in 2014 and my MA in Teaching in 2019, both from San Diego State University. I was SDSU College of Education's Outstanding Graduate of 2019. In my free time, I love to do yoga and go hiking. One of my favorite things to do is play video games. My top 3 favorite games are Halo, Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Mario Kart.
Why did you become a NASEF Scholstic Fellow?
Gaming brings people from all different backgrounds together who, outside of this industry, would likely never cross paths. I see the vast opportunities the Esports world can provide my students, both in education and in their future careers!
