Greetings Mustangs! My name is Rebecca Mehrtens…I am the Physical Education teacher here at Richland, and I am so excited to be here! I obtained my bachelors in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Physical Education from Cal State San Marcos. I then went on to earn my single subject teaching credential and masters in Education. I’ve taught Physical Education at Heritage K8 Charter School and Escondido Charter High School. In addition, I’ve coached youth recreational soccer and softball teams both in Escondido and San Marcos, as well as JV and Varsity softball at Escondido Charter High School. I love teaching students as much as I love staying active myself. I enjoy hiking and playing indoor soccer in my leisure. I am thrilled to be a Mustang, and I am looking forward to a great and productive year with the students!
