Thank you so much for your interest in observing a teacher at El Camino.  Please follow the protocol below to request observation hours with our teachers:

1) Contact teachers directly through our school website.  Teachers are listed by department.

2) When you email the teachers, make sure to send a courtesy copy to the administrator, Marie Higareda de Ochoa ( 

3) Include a scanned copy of your request on your school's letterhead.

4) Be very specific as to the responsibilities of the teacher (ie: signature only to verify attendance, written reports, etc).

5) Wait to hear from the teacher.


We look forward to having you visit our campus.



If you are inquiring about placement at an OUSD site through a credentialing program, please contact Kristin Garrison at our District Office at 760-966-7896.
