Welcome!

Hi! My name is Carla Relano and I am very excited to be teaching at CHS! I grew up in the shadow of Mt. Rainer, in Washington State, but moved to Arizona to pursue my goal of becoming a teacher. I graduated with high honors from Arizona State University with a BAE in History. I am an avid Washington sports fan. I also have two dogs named Tinkerbell and Kona who are my shadows, tagging along with me whenever they can.

My Education and Professional Background

Bachelors of Education; History, ASU

My Educational Philosophy

'Once you have learned how to ask questions, relevant and appropriate and substantial questions, you have learned how to learn and no one can keep you from learning whatever you want or need to know.' (Postman & Weingartner) This quote sums up my teaching style beautifully. It is my ultimate goal to teach my students to think critically, be mindful of their political, social, and economical surrounding, and to become natural problem solvers. I encourage my students to come to their own conclusions through sound research methods, reinforced curiosity and exploration of historical knowledge. I hope to provide my students with a warm and welcoming atmosphere to learn in, one free from judgment, which fosters a culture of learning with love and mutual respect, ultimately leading to lifelong civic awareness and action.
