Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jeanine FitzGerald
Welcome to my Language Arts class! This is my 24th year of teaching.
I grew up in Torrance, California. I am from a big family. I have three brothers and one sister. I attended Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson, California and I played soccer there on a scholarship. I also earned my Master's Degree in English with a minor in Art, and my teaching credential from the same school. My first teaching job was 5th grade at an elementary school in Torrance, California.
I moved to Murrieta in 2001 with my husband and two sons. My oldest son is now 24 years old and my youngest is 21.
I have experience teaching many different grade levels, from kindergarten all the way up to 8th grade. For the past 10 years, I have been teaching only middle school! I have been working in Temecula now for 8 years as a Language Arts Specialist and Language Arts Teacher. I feel blessed to be working here at Bella Vista with such a fantastic staff and student body!
When I am not teaching, I enjoy running, reading, watching movies, listening to music, cooking (and eating, of course), and visiting with friends and family.
I look forward to a wonderful year as we work together in Language Arts!
