Mrs. Jennifer Orpitelli Gurnea

I am a 2007 graduate of UCLA where I earned a B.A. in History. In 2008, I graduated from UC, Irvine, with an M.A. in Teaching and teaching credentials in History and English. This is my 5th year in the district (12th overall) and my 1st here at Travis (I was previously an ELA teacher!)

I proudly employ AVID strategies to help students focus their study skills to find success not only in high school, but in college, too.


Overall, I have a high expectation for personal accountability. In addition, I will do everything in my power to help ALL learners access the material to learn history!


Please feel free to email me ANYTIME you need something--if I don't get back to you within 24 hours, I have accidentally overlooked your emal, but don't fret! Send "2nd Attempt" and I'll get back to you :)
