Joanna Samija
What is your favorite project to assign?
I enjoy assigning projects that get my students up, moving and engaged. An activity that many of my students remember is going outside to use toy cars to demonstrate slope in Algebra I.
Besides teaching, what other roles do you play on campus?
I am a freshman section teacher and I am the moderator for the String Theory Club, which focuses on fiber arts like knitting.
What is your favorite Immaculate Heart tradition?
One of my favorite school traditions is Welcome Day. It is wonderful to see the school come together to welcome the freshman class and share the traditions of the school.

A Catholic, independent college preparatory school for girls in grades 6 through 12, Immaculate Heart has been located on a beautiful hillside property in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles since our founding by the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1906. We celebrate more than a century of nurturing the spiritual, intellectual, social and moral development of students as they distinguish themselves as women of great heart and right conscience.
