I grew up with teacher parents and saw how hard they both worked on the weekends and during breaks. I thought I'd never want to do what they did, but when I tried out substitute teaching after college, I knew teaching was right for me, too. I hold a BA in Literature & Creative Writing from UC Santa Cruz and a MFA in Poetry from Saint Mary's College, so from there it was a natural step for me to become credentialed as a Language Arts teacher.
To this day, I have found no other profession so rewarding and challenging as teaching. I love working with young adults and helping them become mature individuals. The workload that I once dreaded is worth it because it means that I can help my students grow as readers and writers.
I look forward to working with you and your student this year. Never hesitate to contact me with a question, concern, or comment.
