Welcome!

Greetings and welcome to my website! I’m thrilled to be joining the Colt family and look forward to a great school year with you. Here you will find information on my syllabi, classroom policies, and other ELA resources.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Humboldt State University in 2015 with my BA in English (Secondary Education emphasis) and Minors in Linguistics, Spanish, and Teaching English as a Second Language. After four years of long-term subbing and independent tutoring, I took the plunge to receive my teaching credential in 2020 from San Diego State University.

My Educational Philosophy

To best prepare students for the world beyond the K-12 environment, I believe that learning must be student-centered so that learners within my classroom can develop the important communicative and collaborative skills they will need to succeed in college, career, and civic life. I challenge my students to become the best versions of themselves as we explore diverse voices and perspectives in literature by supporting them in their development of essential 21st century skills, with emphases on collaboration, critical thinking, and communication.
