Deidre Ericksen


Please click HERE to access my appointment calendar for Parent Conferences Spring 2022. 


Note that I will not be conducting conferences on the same day as the rest of the Science Department, but on a make-up day the next week. I will be holding conferences on THURSDAY, MARCH 31ST



My name is Deidre Ericksen, and I have been teaching Science at Bravo since I joined the faculty in 2009. I attended UCLA and received my B.S. in Environmental Science. I have two young children that attend elementary school in LAUSD, so they keep me busy in addition to my teaching. Gardening and going to the beach are my two main hobbies. I help run a community garden in West L.A., where I live. I love learning about all aspects of life science and exploring the interactions between all species and the environment, including humans. 


I have taught Biology, Physiology (Honors & on-level), and AP Environmental Science. This year, I am teaching four sections of Physiology and two of AP Environmental Science. I do not have a conference period, so my availability for parent meetings is limited to before and after school, as well as during lunch. For students, the suggested way to contact me is via the Remind App or through Schoology. Parents and caregivers are suggested to contact me via Schoology, as well. I encourage all parents and caregivers to register for a Parent Portal account, so you can keep up with what your student is doing in class. You can also get in contact with me via email at I am looking forward to a great year with you and your students!
