Espinosa, Marissa » Home


I'm Mrs. Espinosa. I've been teaching at SJVA for the past 9 years. I have a Bachelor's Degree in English from the University of California, Irvine; my teaching credential is from the University of California, Riverside; and a Masters Degree in English from Arizona State University.  As you can see, I love English literature, and I hope my love and passion comes through in my teaching.
On this website, you can find all of the fabulous things we are doing in class--everything from field trips and pictures to homework assignments.

I love teaching English, and I want my students to always know what's expected of them. I look forward to an exciting and productive year.
