Welcome Mariners! I am Ms. Rose Gettel. I was born and raised in Canada, where I completed all of my schooling. I hold a BA in English with a French minor from the University of Western Ontario. After finishing my degree, I spent time backpacking across several countries. I continued my education at teacher’s college, earning a Bachelor of Education from Brock University (High school French and English focus). I currently teach English 9 and 11, as well as AP language and composition. I am looking forward to guiding students as they make modern-day connections with a variety of diverse texts. In my spare time, I enjoy running, baking, reading, and enjoying the California sunshine!
