Welcome to Ms. Fitz's Page
2018-2019 is my 12th year teaching high school English and my 10th year here at Trade Tech. I love our small school setting and the relationships it allows teachers to build with students. I am especially excited to be starting our year in our new facility. I teach English 10 and 11, Expository Reading and Writing for 12, Creative Writing, and Yearbook.
I completed my BA in Liberal Studies (with an emphasis in Literature and Writing) as well as my teaching credential at Cal State San Marcos. I have two grown children: a daughter with mad photography (and beyond) skills who works as a photographer at Disneyland and a son who is serving in the US Navy as an electronics technician. My wife and I are currently adjusting to life as empty nesters.
I aim to empower my students with the tools they will need to be critical readers and thinkers. These digital natives are growing up in a world very different from the one their parents and grandparents grew up in, and they will require a different set of tools to navigate it.
