Mrs. Jeanine FitzGerald

Welcome to my classroom! This is my 21st year of teaching.  I have taught many different grade levels from kindergarten all the way up to 8th grade.  For the last 8 years I have taught  middle school only.  

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 and 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 22 years old and my youngest is 19. 

I have been teaching in Temecula now for 6 years, and working here at Bella Vista has been my most favorite job.  I love it here!

When I am not teaching, I enjoy running, reading, wathcing movies, listening to music, cooking (and eating of course), and visiting with friends and family.
