Hello! This is my first year teaching English at Ygnacio Valley High School.


However, this is my 8th year teaching. Previously, I taught Humanities 10 and AP English Literature at Gateway High School in San Francisco. I have also worked and taught at Sequoia High School in Redwood City, Columbia Middle School, Oakland Technical High School, and Berkeley High School.


Currently, I teach English 1 to freshmen and English 2 to sophomores.

I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2009 with a bachelor's degree in English and a minor in Education.

Between 2009 and 2014 I worked with after school programs for first-generation college-bound students, like Y-Scholars at the YMCA PG&E Teen Center in Downtown Berkeley, and Mills College Upward Bound Program. I also worked as a private college application tutor in San Francisco.

In 2014 I graduated from Stanford University's Teacher Education Program with a Secondary Teaching Credential in English and a Master's degree in Education.
