I am an English, ELD and Choir teacher at Sierra Vista. This is my third year of teaching and I'm looking forward to another awesome year!
I graduated from California State University, Northridge in 2011 with a degree in Music Education and completed my English and Music credentials in 2013. After subbing in the Hart District for two years, I was hired at Sierra Vista and cannot stress how wonderful the staff has been in welcoming me to this awesome school!
When I'm not teaching, I spend time running marathons with my husband and reading as many books as possible. I love reading what my students are reading, but make an effort to catch up on those classics! My favorite novel is Pride and Prejudice but I will read any genre! At school I am currently the Club Sponsor of the Chess Club, and Whovians United, a club dedicated to all things Doctor Who. In addition to being a follower of the Doctor Who fandom, I also love Sherlock, Harry Potter, Firefly, Downton Abbey and many, many others.
I'm practically a kid myself, which makes teaching junior high so wonderful. I love the energy the students have and look forward to learning something new every day!
