Chaye Gutierrez' love for history and passion for education brought her to Mullen High School in the fall of 2018. She began at Mullen in the Social Studies department and became Director of the De La Salle Program in 2020. Her research in 20th century German history has brought her to the halls of the Nazi Party Rally Grounds, the courtroom of the Nuremberg Trials, and the dusty stacks of the German Federal Archives. She finds joy in bringing similar kinds of authentic learning opportunities to students at Mullen. When she is not teaching, Chaye can usually be found watering her plants, watching documentaries, or making a mess in the kitchen.
