Principal Benita Scheckel | Altadena Arts Magnet
When I’m not hard at work with my Marshall family and working on my dissertation, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Nick, and two daughters, Madison and Anna. My husband Nick is a Seismic Analyst for Caltech. When he is not analyzing earthquakes or updating the CISN display, we enjoy taking long walks, cooking together and seeing movies and live shows. Our eldest daughter, Madison, is a music producer in Los Angeles, and our younger daughter, Anna, is finishing her degree in Art and Chinese at Drew University in New Jersey. I am an avid traveler, accomplished cook and opera singer. Before becoming a teacher, I enjoyed an international singing career in operas, operettas and musical theatre productions. I cannot help but share the joy of singing with my students as we walk down the halls singing to each other.
