Mrs. Halley Leta-Pombo Duarte


You were able to find my page, yah!!!!  I have been teaching for 9 years at multiple levels from new borns to death.  I ran track in college at Chico State University were I was a Pole Vaulter and Hurdler.  Before college I grew up in Pittsburg, CA and went to high school at Pittsburg High, where I was an all around athlete doing Cross Country, Wrestling, Track & Field, and Flag Twirling (for the Marching Band).  I also competed on a competitive gymnastics team for 3 years of high school.  Lastly, I am in the Air Force Reserves where I work on equipment for airplanes and get to meet lots of interesting and talented people.  I am happy to be your teacher and go on this wild journey with you for the year.  

Fun Fact: My best years of schooling believe it or not were Jr. High.  This is due to I loved my teachers and I still talk to the ones that made a big impact on my life till this day.  The close friends I had would go take pictures together, go out to eat on minimum days, go to the movies (20+ deep but always respectful!), have shaving cream fights, do goofy things, and we were part of the leadership team at school.  We helped others have fun while academically succeeding.  

Remember:  Life is always what you make of it, outcomes are always in your favor.  Do what makes you happy and you will go far!!!
