TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for over 10 years, most of which were in high school English and Theatre Arts. I have taught all four grades of English (9-12), as well as both the performance and technical side of theatre. When I began teaching theatre, I also took over our school's Drama program, where I oversaw and directed all plays, musicals, and improv performances.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is energetic and fast-paced, but I constantly check for student understanding. I like to engage students with references they can connect with and give students a sense of belonging to my classroom community. I should also mention that I am quite loud. ;)

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am an Aztec through and through, as I earned my BA in French, Single Subject English teaching credential, and MA in Theatre Arts all from San Diego State University.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Teaching is in my blood. I have been unsure of many things over the course of my life, but of two things I have always been certain - I wanted to be a mom and I wanted to be a teacher. I am proud to teach back in the school district where I grew up and where my own children will attend, Poway Unified School District, in San Diego, CA.
