Mrs. Heather Jovin

I've been teaching in San Diego for over a decade and love what I do. I always knew I wanted to be of service to others. When I was in high school, I had a teacher who had a positive impact on my life. The impact she had on me made me realize what I wanted to do with my life and know that I, too, could make a difference. I was a student at San Pasqual Union and it’s always held a special place in my heart. I consider it a privilege to work here.

My mission as a teacher is that every student leaves my classroom with a love of learning. Learning should be fun, exciting, and also challenging. Students will learn through multiple modalities, such as hands-on projects, small group instruction, cooperative activities, and technology. Individuality and uniqueness are welcomed and embraced so students’ strengths can shine. I expect my students to try their best, work hard, help others, and are able to build their confidence academically and personally. I try to create a classroom environment that is inviting so students feel comfortable taking positive risks and are able to live up to their highest potential.
