MJ Commodore: English Teacher

Aloha!  My name is MJ Commodore and I’m an English Teacher  located at Temecula Learning Center.  This is my 10th year teaching and 2nd year with SDVS.  I’ve taught in myriad of settings from Department of Defense Dependent Schools to comprehensive middle & high schools.  I firmly believe I am here to teach the “whole student,” and I, specifically, enjoy the one-on-one interactions with students and seeing them evolve academically as well as personally before my eyes.  I have a Single Subject credential in English from California State University, San Marcos, and B.A. in English from University of Louisville. I live in Temecula with my husband, two children, and two Yorkie dogs.  I am a self-proclaimed foodie who loves the experience of food from shopping and cooking to eating.  In my spare time, I can be found devouring a great novel at a public library, driving along Coast Highway, or lounging by the beach.

Jessica Loughman: English Teacher

Hello, my name is Ms. Loughman and I am very excited to be an English/Music Teacher at San Diego Virtual School for the 2015-2016 school year!  I moved to San Diego from upstate New York where I received a Bachelor’s degree in English and Music and my Master’s of Science in Teaching from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh. I have my teaching credentials in both English and Music, and love both subjects.  My hobbies include singing, playing guitar, snowboarding, and doing yoga. I live in North Park with my two cats, and I am loving getting to know more about San Diego!

Ariana Metzker: English Teacher

My name is Ariana Metzker and I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a Bachelor of Arts in English literature and psychology. I later went on to earn my master’s degree in English education in 2011. Although I loved teaching English in the traditional setting, I am extremely excited to be a part of San Diego Virtual School’s innovative program. The transition has afforded me the opportunity to provide more personalized guidance and customize each student’s learning plan. My husband and I recently relocated to San Diego to soak up the perfect weather, and we love to travel during our free time.

Colleen Perez: English Teacher

Hello! I love being an English teacher at San Diego Virtual School! I work at our Chula Vista site and have enjoyed watching our school grow over the years. I value getting to know my students and helping them reach their greatest potential. I went to SDSU for my undergrad and earned my Credential/ Masters of Education at Azusa Pacific University.

I have lived in San Diego since I began my journey at SDSU but am originally from San Francisco. I love theater, music, traveling, working out, and spending quality time with my friends, family, and husband :)

Leah Abriani: English Teacher

I am Leah Abriani and I am pleased to be teaching Middle School English at San Diego Virtual School. I am a northern California native who has taught multiple subjects to a diversity of students in four different states across the country (but California is the best!). I love discussing literature with students and helping them organize their bright ideas into cohesive essays. In my free time I enjoy hiking and exploring new restaurants with my husband who works at SDSU.

Michelle Hitchcock: English Teacher

Hi! My name is Michelle Hitchcock and I’m excited to be an English teacher here at SD Virtual. I hold a Clear Multiple Subjects CA Teaching Credential from Azusa Pacific University and I have over 10 years of experience teaching from Preschool to 4th Grade. I consider teaching to be not only my career, but a passion of my life. Personally, I grew up in the Seattle area and have lived in California for about 15 years. I have 2 sweet young children and we love to swim, read, and hit Disneyland whenever we can. My goals are to complete my Master’s degree, see some of the places I’ve studied in all my History courses, and get my real estate license someday!

Danielle Rickard – English Teacher

Hey there! I’m so excited to join the team here at SDVS! I’m an English teacher with 13 years of experience teaching Middle School Language Arts, English Language Development with English Learners, and Reading Intervention where I have helped middle and high school students improve their reading. What I love about teaching is actually the students! It is the main  reason I am getting my Masters degree in School Counseling. I strongly believe in promoting the social/emotional wellness of students in order to help them learn in school, and grow into the best version of themselves. I just got married this summer, and moved onto a boat with my husband! It’s a tight squeeze but we are learning how to live a more minimalist lifestyle while enjoying the San Diego sun. I feel incredibly fortunate to get to live and work in San Diego!
