El Modena High School is proud to announce its 2020 Employees of the Year: Vicki Mull and Sky Amirazodi

El Modena High School is proud to announce its 2020 Employees of the Year: Vicki Mull and Sky Amirazodi


Our 2020 Teacher of the Year is Vicki Mull.  Vicki has been an educator for twenty-two years and teacher at El Modena High School for fourteen Years.  She currently teaches AP Literature and Film - Advanced Video Production. Mrs. Mull is an integral part of our campus, serving as advisor to the Junior Class of 2021, Photography Club advisor, and Literary Magazine advisor.  As a proud OUSD and Elmo parent, Vicki serves on the PTSA and OCCPTA. Her favorite thing about El Modena High School is the amazing community that grows year after year between staff, students, and families.

"The story is everything: As a teacher, it is my duty and my honor to make sure my students not only read, write and discuss great stories, but to also help them find their place within the narrative. Their story is comprised of what they do, how they act, what they say and they have ownership of that. I want to illuminate my students' journey and ensure they know their place and power, not only in my class, but in the school and community at large." - Mrs. Mull on Education

Our 2020 Classified Employee of the Year is Sky Amirazodi.  Sky has worked at El Modena High School for the past twelve years as an Instructional Assistant in the Special Education Department with the Mod/Severe students alongside  Mrs. Cahill and Mr. Wagner. In her time, Sky has worked with a wide range of students, participating in elective classes such as Foods, Ceramics, PE, Art, Dance, Computers, and Math classes.  Her favorite thing about Elmo has been “seeing students grow bonds with and look out for each of our SpEd kiddos.”

It is also an extraordinary accomplishment that Sky has been fortunate enough to put herself through Medical School while working at El Modena full time.  She has obtained her Master’s Degree in Medical Science and hopes to take the Medical Board Exam to complete her Doctorate.

Classified Employee of the Year 2020 - Sky Amirazodi

Congratulations again to these two amazing individuals.  El Modena's students, faculty, parents and community thank you for the countless hours you've dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of our young people.  Both Vicki and Sky have been nominated for Orange Unified Employees of the Year, which will be announced this Spring.
