Teaching the AVID Elective is Mrs. Soderman's passion and she is thrilled to have a full schedule of AVID Elective classes this school year!
Prior to moving to Eastvale, CA, in July of 2016, Mrs. Soderman spent 16 years in Gilbert/Mesa, AZ, and was born and raised in the Chicago, IL area.
Mrs. Soderman is an avid reader, photographer and sports fan. More often than not, if the TV is on in her home, it is tuned to a channel featuring a Bears, Cubs, or Blackhawks game. Whenever she is not lesson planning or grading papers or reading or watching sports or taking photos, she enjoys spending time with her family. Her father, brother, and nieces are living in the Chicago suburbs, while her two daughters (ages 21 and 23) are still living in the Phoenix area. Her husband, Leo, step-daughter, Casey, and two dogs, Maverick and Geo, made the move to California with her. In May of 2017, they added another fur baby, Westley, to their household. Mrs. Soderman's mom recently made the move to California from the Phoenix area as well.
Mrs. Soderman also serves as the Site AVID Coordinator.
