Ms. Gretchen Medel

A graduate of U.C. Davis with additional education from U.C. Berkeley, I have been teaching in the medical field for seven years.  I transitioned from the corporate world to EMS when I became an EMT in 2008 fulfilling a lifelong passion to work on a 911 ambulance.  Entering teaching in 2013, my passion evolved into equiping students with the tools they need to respond with confidence and determination to any emergency situation, making a difference in the lives of those around them.  I teach at the high school, adult education and college level and am passionate about teaching students to be the best they can be.  Be sure to check out our EMS photo gallery where you will see our EMR students in action!

During our Distance Learning, I have been meeting with students on our regularly scheduled days and regularly scheduled times for our Period 0 and 1 classes focusing on enrichment and review.  I look forward to working with all of you this year!
