•          Some of my favorites...


    I am so happy to be in my fourth year at Cordova High! I started loving reading and books when I was in high school, and it is my hope that I can help inspire you to love learning and help you improve your reading, writing, speaking and critical thinking skills. 

    Before being a Lancer, I was teaching in Southern California (Irvine and LA) from 2012-2020; before that in Krakow, Poland 2007-2012; and before that on the Big Island of Hawai'i 2003-2007. I enjoy going on adventures and exploring with my three girls. Besides traveling, my hobbies include reading (for fun), bodyboarding, snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking, collecting vinyl records, and gardening/landscaping. I look forward to working with you this year.
