• My name is Barbara Pearson and I teach 6th grade and APEX (grades 9-12) at REACH Academy.  I grew up in Santa Ana, attending John Adams Elementary, Carr Intermediate and Valley High School.  I began my career at SAUSD in 1991 and have held a variety of roles, including teaching all grade levels TK-6, APEX, AVID and Certificated Learning and Academic Specialist.  I earned a Bachelor of Science at California State University, Long Beach, where I also obtained my teaching credential.  I hold a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction from California State University, Fullerton (CSUF). 

    Sixth grade students at REACH will be in a self-contained setting where they receive all instruction in one classroom.  Our daily schedule includes all subject areas: English Language Arts, Writing, Math, Social Studies, Science, Physical Education and Social Emotional Learning. 

    I can be reached at barbara.pearson@sausd.us or call 714.431.1800.
