Valley Adventist Christian School (VACS)

Mrs. Height's Class Grades 2 - 4

Hello and welcome! I am truly excited to be working alongside Christ in molding the lives of your precious ones at Valley Adventist Christian School. With God's guidance, I'm sure this year will be filled with enormous successes for my 2-4 grade brilliant students!
I am a graduate of CSUSB and the University of Redlands where I received Bachelor of Arts degrees in Liberal Studies and Human Development, then my Masters degree in Education with a specialization in Special Education. In addition to teaching in various school districts, I have served as an independent education consultant and owned my own business as an instructor of sign-language programs for infants & toddlers.  My husband and I have one beautiful daughter and a very furry rabbit.  When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family playing trivia games & traveling. I also LOVE to sing to the glory of God. I pray that my singing habit rubs off on my students as almost EVERYTHING in my class turns into a song!

My goal is to facilitate a learning environment which will inspire and encourage your child to do his/her best each time they pass through my door.  Honestly, what gives me the greatest joy in teaching is to observe when students have an "A-HA!" moment.  It's that moment when they just...get it! May God give us all many "A-HA" moments each day. 

Please feel free to contact me M-Th. after 3:30pm 951-242-3012. Or, you may email me at
Below you will find wonderful resources for your child.  Feel free to browse our site as information is updated weekly. Thank you for playing an active role in your
child’s education and giving me the opportunity to contribute to the educational success of your child!

With His blessing,

Mrs. Darna Height
