A little about me:

I graduated from Wilcox High School, then attended Humboldt State University where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in English with an emphasis in secondary education. I completed some additional coursework in technical writing and travel writing. I worked in the travel industry as a trainer for a few years before returning to school to complete my teaching credential in 1997. I began teaching English at Wilcox in 1998.

Over the years, I have taught many courses, including: Speech and Debate, English 9, English 10, English 11, Contemporary Literature, American Literature, Expository Writing 11 and 12, ELL Advanced, SDAIE 10, 11, and 12, and Creative Writing. I have a Technology certificate from UC Santa Cruz and completed the SCUSD Tech Academy. I also completed the AP Summer Institute and the CSU English Reading and Writing Training.

When I am not grading or planning lessons, I keep myself busy volunteering at both of my daughters' schools and being a softball and dance mom. If I ever get free time, I enjoy reading, riding my Harley, going to the spa, scrapbooking, crocheting, sleeping, all kinds of crafts and do-it-yourself projects, and spending time with my daughters.
