For the 2016 year, Fountain Valley High School (FVHS) has welcomed six new teachers onto its campus.
The incoming teachers of 2016-2017 school year are of the following: Richere Breault in the Language department, Taylor Stamper in the English department, Jamie Tungyoo in the Science department and Jeff Dunbar, Angela Ferguson-McConnell and Connor King, all in the Special Education Department.
“I was looking for an opportunity to teach closer where I live. I also heard really good things about this school district and the school so it just fit with what I was looking for as a career goal,” said Breault, on her reasons for joining Fountain Valley High School.
As a new French teacher, Breault is teaching French 1 and French 2. Prior to coming to FVHS, she has had six years of teaching experience, two of them from California State University, Long Beach. Breault hopes this school year to be a learning experience for her in the new community and is excited about the students and campus in general.
Dunbar, who teaches English and math classes in addition to the special education class, has claimed that FVHS has a warm and friendly environment that Dunbar loves.
“[It’s] just the camaraderie and the family nature here, people seem to love coming here. I’ve already enjoyed my job more than my other ones. It’s a good community here,” said Dunbar.
