Adele Madelo

Alumni, Class of 1997


I've been a media and history teacher since 1997 and currently teach at the Redwood Day School in Oakland, California. Most of my experience has been in middle and upper school. Design continues to be a passion, especially in the classroom, as I struggle every day to create experiences that will help kids understand history at a profound level. These experiences involve, among many modes, the use of collage, photography, sound, and, of course, writing. My largest interest in history continues to be that of migrations -- how people move and bring ideas with them, thus creating hybrids, a legacy of my time as a media studies teacher.
