Ms. Dybdahl: Health

LEYEdybdahl (1)

A traveler since childhood and a lover of teaching, Ms. Dybdahl sets foot on the SMHS campus this year as a new member of our beloved staff. Her subject of expertise is health, but her views outside of that topic are only limited by the sky. In spite of her busy schedule, Ms. Dybdahl is more than willing to answer some of the questions we propose, her tone cheerful and friendly.

Born in sunny Southern California, Ms. Dybdahl spent her childhood in Arizona until she attended college at California State University, Long Beach. From there, her eyes were opened to a whole new view of the world: to be successful in life is to be happy. “I realized in college that when I am in the classroom guiding learning experiences and inspiring teenagers to be healthier, happier humans, I am happy.” Before she came to San Mateo High, Ms. Dybdahl taught at San Pedro High School in the Los Angeles County. Like SMHS, her work environment was diverse, but the only difference was that her previous school had a whopping 3,600 students. “I love my new school!” she said. “It has the spirit I always wanted at my high school, so it’s awesome because I get to feel part of a high school community with lots of school spirit.”

Sitting in the room she shared with Mr. Scheller and wearing a big smile on her face, Ms.Dybdahl seems exactly to be the person she describes herself to be. No matter how busy she is, she enjoys hanging out with her dog and outdoor activities, like surfing and hiking,but she also won’t give up an opportunity to read and do crafts inside. Ms. Dybdahl isalso a teacher that students can easily connect to, just check who her celebrity crush is. “Sherlock forever!” Ms. Dybdahl screams, saying that he is her favorite character on TV. “If you know his personality, I think it’s the ‘You always want what you can’t have’ deal that’s going on, she added with a secretive smile. Upon joining the staff, Ms. Dybdahl has just a few goals in mind for the school year. “I really look forward to the football games and getting to know the students and my coworkers better!” she said cheerfully. With that, let’s give Ms. Dybdahl a warm bearcat welcome!
