Welcome to English Foundations!
I have been a Resource Specialist and English teacher at Vista since 2013. I graduated from Sonoma State University with my Bachelor's dergree in English and my secondary teaching credential. I have also received my Master's degree in Special Education from National University. I have loved my experience working with staff and families at Vista. I grew up locally and enjoy the outdoors and taking trips to Tahoe to camp, hike and swim. I am excited for another year working with the iLit curriculum and meeting my new students.
