Degrees and Certifications:
Assistant Principal CCPA Design Team Member (CCPA since 2005) UC Berkeley Cal State East Bay
Born and raised in Oakland, and a graduate of Oakland Public Schools, Fabiana is a co-founder of Coliseum College Prep Academy, and currently one of the Assistant Principals. However, Fabiana has been on the Havenscourt campus since 1994.
While an undergraduate student at UC Berkeley, she found an opportunity to be an academic mentor during a summer bridge program at then known Havenscourt Junior High School, working with mostly incoming 7th and 8th grade students. Her summer employment was extended into the 1994-1995 school year. One school year became three school years, and by the fall of 1997, Fabiana, having recently graduated from UC Berkeley, welcomed her first group of 6th grade students into Room 110 at Havenscourt Middle School. What was to be only 1 year of teaching, became 9 years of quite a rollercoaster ride of teaching English, ELD and History to students in grades 6,7, and 8, and the foundation of a deep commitment and love for the Havenscourt community.
Now on her 21st year serving the Havenscourt community, Fabiana continues to strengthen and deepen her commitment to new generations of students and families that walk onto the CCPA campus.
