Kate Phillips' new book "Helen Hunt Jackson - A Literary Life"Helen Hunt Jackson and Temecula
In 1862, Louis Wolf [one of Temecula’s earliest merchants, postmaster, and most influential characters] married Ramona Place who had been born in Santa Barbara in 1846 and was half Indian. Author Helen Hunt Jackson visited briefly with Louis and Ramona Wolf in the spring of 1882 and again in May, 1883. Wolf’s store helped inspire her description of the fictional Hartsel’s store at Temecula in her classic novel Ramona.

"Ramona Wolf and Helen Hunt Jackson seem to have gotten along well, leading some to suggest that she was the ‘original’ (or at least the namesake) of Jackson’s famous fictional heroine (who was also half Indian).” Phil Brigandi, author of Temecula at the Crossroads of History.

The Temecula Valley Museum owns one of the original letters Helen Hunt Jackson wrote to Ramona Wolf.  Because of the connection between Helen Hunt Jackson and Ramona Wolf , Temecula assumes a focus in the events that shaped the character and history of California and the nation.

QUALITY OF INSTRUCTION

TVUSD aligns its curriculum with state standards and provides enrichment activities at the site level to support instruction. The District also holds a philosophy that each school principal should be the Instructional Leader on that campus. 

As such, principals take an active role in the learning process at each TVUSD school, spending much of their day in the classroom. TVUSD teachers are evaluated and given areas for improvement by their principals. To aide in this endeavor, administrators are trained in evaluation skills. 

This training is designed to help administrators evaluate their staff in a manner that will produce better teaching in the classroom and thus enhance student success. Staff development days enhance this quest for excellence by giving teachers the tools needed to succeed in an on-going manner.
