Charmetra Chatmon is an educator at the LAUSD and has been in education for over 20 years. She has taught 8th grade for the duration of her career and loves this age group for their energy and curiosity. She has a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from Biola University and a master’s degree in Teaching, Learning, and Technology from Point Loma Nazarene University.

Her passion has been educating children in both academics and character and she enjoys being a part of their growth and development during their transition from middle school to high school. Her goal is to give students the tools they need to navigate an increasingly polarized world while learning how to contribute to conversations in a meaningful and logical way.

Although she has no biological children of her own, she is a primary caretaker for 5 nieces and nephews, from ages 10 to 17, who have lived in her home on an ongoing basis since they were babies.
