CHS Instructional Coach - A little about me. 

I have been teaching for more than 20 years, most of those having been at Folsom Middle School. Before that, I taught in southern California.  Now, I am proud to be a Lancer at Cordova High School where I work as the Instructional Coach. 

What is an Instructional Coach?  It's an experienced teacher who supports other teachers (at all levels of their careers)  by developing ideas and resources to enhance and expand their already amazing teaching practices. Instructional Coaches work across the district to address all students' unique needs, especially as we continue to navigate the effects of the recent pandemic and its impact on kids and education.   

In addition to working as the Instructional Coach, I am Cordova High's History Day Advisor.  If you're looking for me, you can find me in my office in the CHS Library.

The faculty and staff at Cordova High are the best of the best, and I feel fortunate to be counted among them. Go Lancers!
