    Welcome to Santan Jr. High Scholars!

    This year we are, like plants, going to focus on our (intellectual) blooming. We will read, write, create and discuss- and elevate our skills in these necessary human practices.

    My Education and Professional Background

    Bachelors in English Literature from SUNY Geneseo 

    Masters in the Science of Teaching from SUNY Oswego

    My Educational Philosophy

    We read to build empathy.
    We write to foster courage.
    We create to share parts of ourselves.
    We discuss to experience decorum when we listen to hear and not listen to merely rebut.

    What an honor it is to be a part of these critical aspects of growth for our young adults. Thank you for letting me be your teacher.
