My 15-year teaching experience includes the following courses:

  • IB Language and Literature (HL and SL) - 5 years
  • 11th grade language arts - 1 year
  • 8th grade language arts - 9 years
  • Drama - 6 years
  • Reading interventions - 10 years
  • AVID - 7 years

I earned a bachelor's degree from California State University, Fullerton (journalism and English), and a master's degree in teaching from Chapman University.

This is my sixth year at THE Renton High School, and my fifth year teaching IB. In addition to teaching and reading, I love eating spicy food (the hotter the better!), watching "mindless" television on the Bravo network, organizing messy spaces (and labeling them!), and playing silly games with my children (Max, 8 and Mila, 5).
