Mrs. van den Heever (Mrs. van D), Adviser

My name is Tina van den Heever, and I am the adviser for journalism here at SMHS.

The 2023/24 school year is  my 13th year at SMHS, and I this is my third immersed year in Journalism.  My class will be working on getting our website fleshed out and current, along with incorporating multi-media technology.  WATCH THIS SPACE!

On a personal note: I'm the mother of two children, Christian, who is 30 and lives in Denver, and Adria, who is 24 and lives in Long Beach.  I also have a 19 year-old stepson Shaun, who is living in Arkansas.  I'm married and live in Santa Maria.  I currently teach English 10 Honors, ERWC 12, and journalism.

In my spare time (LOL) I enjoy home improvement projects, reading, hiking, traveling, and sleeping.  :)  We have a sweet dog, Abbie, at home who demands that we walk her and take her to the dog beach so she can live her best life.  We also have a cat, Lola, who's 18 and beast mode.

Next up for me: Japan for Spring Break, 2024! Wanna go too?  Ask me about it! I'm in room 121.
