Welcome to My Page!


I'm Donnie Surla, and I've been teaching English and Drama here at Rio Vista High School for 15 years.  I live in this community and am raising a family here, so I'm committed to making our school great!  


Here's a little more about me:


-born and raised in California

-Chico State University graduate

-lifelong Chicago Cubs fan

-married with one daughter (she's in 7th grade this year!)

-major passions are theatre, sports, baking, traveling, my faith, and my family.


This year I will be co-advising the American Field Service club along with Ms. Mason.  If you are interested in participating in a cross-country domestic school exchange with us this Spring, please join us.  Last year, we went to Lenoir, North Carolina, at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains.  This year we are headed to Boston, Massachusetts. Being a part of AFS is a great way to get involved at RVHS and in your community.  It's a GREAT organization.  


I'm also an adviser for the Drama Club and the Glee Club!
