TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching high school for the past 16 years. Throughout that time, I have taught English at every secondary level. I have also taught multiple levels of ELD (ESL). In addition to actual "in class experience", I have been a curriculum development specialist for online education through California State University Fullerton (CSUF) and have worked extensively with the Common Core Standards. This year, I have stepped out of the classroom to take the position of instructional coach for my high school. I spend my days working with talented educators to level up their instructional practice.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in rigorous instruction based on student-driven inquiry and discovery.
