Mrs. Natalie Vargas

French I, II, III, IV and IB Language B/AP French Language Instructor

Mrs. Natalie Vargas graduated from Mammoth High School (MHS) and matriculated to the University of California at Santa Cruz where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Language Studies. She then attended the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey where she earned her Masters Degree in Teaching World Languages. Subsequently, she received her single subject teaching credential in French and Spanish language instruction from Sierra Nevada College. In May of 2014, she cleared her Mild/Moderate Resource Credential through National University. The majority of her teaching career was spent at Bishop Union High School (2006 - 2013), just south of her Alma Mater, MHS. At Bishop Union, she taught everything from Spanish to CAHSEE preparatory mathematics. Looking for a new challenge, Mrs. Vargas moved to Temecula in 2013 and spent a year teaching at Escondido High School. Mrs. Vargas loves living in Temecula and, thus, actively sought out a teaching position closer to home. She was fortunate to be offered a position at Temecula Preparatory School (TPS) in the fall of 2014. After four years at TPS serving as a teacher and instructional coach, Mrs. Vargas was thrilled to join the Wolfpack in 2018 and has been filled with SPIRIT ever since.
