I spent my entire childhood in central Maryland. In college, I majored in English and Theatre Arts, and I spent many hours tutoring middle school students, performing children’s theatre, and volunteering as an ESL instructor for adults. After completing my college career at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania, I decided to move to California.
I spent the years after college graduation in California, gradually moving up the coast, from Salinas to Monterey to Oakland. In each place I gained expertise working with students of all ages – kindergarten through eighth grade – and especially teaching literacy, creative writing, reading comprehension, and incorporating theatre into my teaching. I have experience working in multilingual communities and with diverse students and their families.
I enrolled in the credential/master’s program at the University of California, Davis; after finishing the multiple subject credential portion of the program, I taught English at St. Paul School to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. During my first year of teaching, I received my single subject credential in English and my Master’s Degree in Education.
I am recently married and a very happy dog owner. No doubt, you will hear lots of stories about my Border Collie puppy, Zoe. Outside of school, I enjoy being outside in any capacity – camping, hiking, traveling, swimming – you name it! I also enjoy theatre, photography and reading widely. Now that you know a bit about me, I look forward to learning more about your child!
