Mrs. Dina (Balbi)

Hi! My name is Brooke Dina and I teach ELA 1-2, ELA 1-2 Honors, & Dual Enrollment ENG 101/102.

I was born and raised in a small, rural town called Rescue in Northern California. 

I was recently married in October of 2021 (My new last name will be Dina).

I graduated from GCU with both a Master's degree in English for Higher Education and a Bachelor's degree in English for Secondary Education.

A few things I LOVE:

• Art

• Rock Climbing

• Hunger Games (it's the series that made me love reading)


More than a few FUN FACTS:

• I will drink iced coffee year-round, no matter how cold it gets outside.

• I was born with a rare skin condition.

• I coached gymnastics for 7 years.


Some things I did when I was in HIGH SCHOOL

• Color Guard (LOVED)

• Varsity Golf (I was terrible; who let me in?)

• Chamber Choir (LOVED)

• Gymnastics (also terrible, but loved coaching)


Thank you for reading (I really love it when students do that).
