Who am I?

I am a graduate of the University of San Diego, where I got my B.A. in Liberal Studies with a Concentration in Theatre as well as my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.  I also hold a Single Subject Teaching Credential in English.


my Mission

My mission is to foster creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication within my students.  I want to help them be the best version of themselves they can be, and promote their spiritual, physical, academic, emotional, and social wellbeing.  And ultimately, I want them to love learning, because learning lasts a lifetime.

The creative adult is the child who survived.
