Adventures in Writing Camp is excited to return to Campbell Seventh Day Adventist this summer with all new curriculum! This location will have first grade, elementary, and middle school programs! Our team of credentialed teachers, musicians and college students is ready to help new campers build confidence and fall in love with writing, and help returning campers continue to develop as writers!
MEET THE TEAM
Philina Lin, Site Administrator
Welcome! My name is Ms. Philina Lin and I am incredibly humbled and thrilled to be your Site Administrator!
My love for writing began in college when I studied poetry for a year and graduated with a focus in Creative Writing from San Jose State. Since then, I continued my teaching career at UC Irvine where I graduated with my Multiple Subject Credential and Masters of Arts in Teaching. During the academic year, I teach one of the most fundamentally important grades: First Grade! Writing in First Grade begins with building excitement in writing, and that's what I am looking forward to most in meeting our campers this summer!
Danielle ("Danni") Strand, Writing Ranger (Middle School)
“Diction Danni” has returned! This will be Danni's third season at Adventures in Writing Camp, and second as Site Administrator! For the first eight years of her career, Danni taught high school English. For her second act, she's developed her own private tutoring practice. She earned her bachelor’s degree in English literature at UC Santa Cruz and her master’s in education and English teaching credential at Stanford University. Danni just looooves words, wordplay, and all sorts of stories. She is excited to help campers find the stories inside them and get zany with words! *Pictured: Diction Danni makes it home to her favorite shelf of books (seen in background) after climbing through a mudslide -- nothing stops her!
Jesus Gonzalo Rivera Solano, Adventure Guide (Counselor)
Hello, my name is Jesus Gonzalo Rivera Solano, or Jesus Rivera for short.
I am an undocumented student at De Anza College. I am majoring in English, History, and ESL for Education. I am also a Undocumented educator and peer advisor on campus.
I have previously had the awesome chance to work for the East Side Unified School District as a tutor for high school juniors and seniors. My mother runs a daycare which provided me with the skills to accommodate with every child's need and learning methods.
I wish to be the kind of teacher students can talk to their friends and parents about. I strongly believe any child regardless of their background, can become the next big author.
Lily Tram, Supervised Play Scout
Lily loves to play with her cousins and go on adventures with her friends. She loves helping kids learn and having fun. Lily attends San Jose State University and is pursuing a degree in Child and Adolescent Development. She has experience working with children as she occasionally tutors her cousins with their homework. Also, she has worked with children in the Collaborative Community Program at Washington Elementary School where she served as a mentor to young Latino elementary school students. In her free time, she enjoys watching YouTube videos, working out at the gym, going on food adventures and spending time with her family. Lily is super excited to join the SuperPlay Scout Team!
Jose Arriaga, Assistant Site Administrator
Hi! My name is Jose and guess what? I'm from San Jose! I am a current masters student at Santa Clara University reaching for a Doctor of Education Degree in the future years! I believe that learning should be all about fun, discovery, and interaction. Writing is one of the ways in which children learn about their own voice and identity! We unearth passions and realize dreams through writing!
