Temecula Valley Charter

Skip to main content


Language is the tool that has been with humans for ages.  We crave communication!  As a teacher, I want students to see the importance of expression and words.  I enjoy watching Star Wars and reading poetry.  I also love teaching!  Being able to talk about and share my passion with our future makes every day a learning experience that I am thankful to have.  
I am a wife and mother two kids: one boy and one girl.  When I am not in the classroom I am spending time with my family, which is important to me.
Looking forward to another amazing year here at Temecula Valley Charter School!

This Week at a Glance

Good afternoon,
This past week students continued reading Lord of the Flies and completing their graphic organizers, bookmarks and vocabulary through chapter sixteen.  They also listened to various songs and plotted the narrative of the song using plot diagrams.  Finally, they completed two separate activities for essay introductions and narrative techniques.
Homework for this weekend: Students should work on "catching up" this weekend.  This is their LAS​​T OPPORTUNITY to get caught up before the final projects are due.  They must be done with all reading, bookmarks, graphic organizers, etc. through chapter twelve.  ​
They may also be working on their essay, mini project, or pizza box.
Next week we will finish the novel.  The final due dates for all of the novel activities are as follows:
