Joanie Fernando


I’ve taught at Carondelet since 2016 and look forward to many more years here! I grew up in Oakland, California, and attended Bishop O’Dowd High School, so I understand the ethos and benefit of a Catholic education. I have taught many different courses in the Social Studies department and enjoy co-moderating Mock Trial and moderating the Social Justice Club here. I love learning languages and have studied Spanish and German in my free time. Other hobbies include cooking, gardening, and spending time with family. I have always wanted to be a teacher and am honored to fulfill this lifelong dream at Carondelet High School.
