My name is Teresa Warrington, and I am a 10th grade world history teacher at Heritage High School. I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a few things about myself – both personally and professionally.
I was born and raised in southern California, but have also lived and worked for a number of years in Europe and have traveled in Asia and Latin America. For many years I have taken students on tour with me in Europe over their winter break seeing first-hand the places they studied in my course. I received my B.A. and teacher credential from the University of Redlands and I received my M.A. in Political Science from California State University Fullerton. I recently retired from my position as a professor of Political Science at Riverside Community College where I taught courses in American politics, global politics, and international relations. This will be my sixteenth-year teaching at the secondary level with Perris Union High School District. In addition to a rewarding career as an educator, I have also worked in this community as a sworn deputy sheriff, and was for a time assigned to this school district as its School Resource Officer, where I developed my interest in teaching. Now, also retired from the law enforcement profession, I am proud to continue to serve this community as an educator.
I have planned an exciting year for my students. The focus of my modern times world history class will be on the Enlightenment, Political Revolutions, Industrialization, European Imperialism, World War I, World War II, and the Cold War. Geography, international relations, culture, and the development of democratic thought will be a component of these topics.
I am looking forward to meeting my students and their families this school year.
