Alexandria Leigh Fabbro

Profile Updated: April 9, 2020
Class of 1982
Residing In: Altadena, CA USA
Occupation: Rio Vista Elementary School SPED Teacher
Occupation/Career(s) Details:

Was a flight test engineer for the Air Force. Was educating future engineers, but then lucked into the field of moderate-severe special education.

Different places I have lived:

Mostly California (Tehachapi, Mammoth Lakes), although I did get to live in Fairbanks, AK, for an entire winter, so I can't believe I'm such a snow wimp now that I've bailed out of Mammoth to return to SoCal. Big Bear is looking good for retirement in the next couple of years, though.

Family history living in South Pasadena:

We sold the family house we grew up in several years ago, but when I drove by it a few weeks ago, I have to say that I love the paint scheme and landscape work the new owners have done.

My nephew and his mom still live in SP in the house he grew up in, so I still have a tie to the place.

Elementary school and junior high/middle school(s) I attended.

Lincoln (later Arroyo Vista) Elementary (K)
Holy Family (Grades 1-8)
St. Andrew's High School Pasadena (Grades 9-10)
SPHS (Grades 11-12; Class of 1982)

Family members who also went to SPHS:

Tim Price (uncle)
Noelle Price Deinken (aunt)
Chris Fabbro (brother)
Eric Fabbro (nephew)

Other SPHS graduates I keep in touch with:

Billie Bateman
Kyle Barnes
Betsy Palfreyman
LisaRae Lattin
Jacqui Pekny
Kristin Bartlett
Marcia Jue

School Memories:

Every single Junior Statesmen of America event seemed to have a story associated with it.

Organizations, clubs, sports groups, and other groups I (did or do) participate in (in high school and/or now):

JSA (1980-1982)
Track (1980-1982)
Yearbook (1981-1982)

What's happening in my life now:

After 13 years in Mammoth Lakes (the last 9 full-time), I moved back to SoCal, where my house in The Meadows of Altadena has trail access oh-so-close.

Pastimes & Hobbies:

I mountain and road bike, alpine and cross-country ski, and snowboard. I have a terrier mutt, Radler, and her cat LT.

Favorite Music, Songs, Bands

Can't say that I hate living in the past, with Swedish Eagle, Richard Blade, and all the familiar DJs from my formative years living on Sirius XM channels.

Favorite Books, Magazines, Movies, TV etc:

Streaming everything during the pandemic of 2020.

What I'd like my classmates to know about me for our next class reunion.

I am so looking forward to retiring early (like, after the 2020-2021 school year). I plan to live overseas (Spello, Italy and Guernsey, Channel Islands) half the year and in Big Bear and Altadena the other half. I need to figure out how to travel with my pets without the airline killing them.
