I was raised in Del Norte County. I went to Mary Peacock, Crescent Elk, and Del Norte High School. After I graduated DNHS, I attended community college in Santa Rosa, CA. I then received my BA in Modern Literature from UC Santa Cruz and my MA in English Composition from San Francisco State University. I taught college for 4 years, and am now back to teach at Del Norte High School. I am very excited to give back to the community and school that helped raise me. I plan to have a long career teaching English at DNHS.
I believe that all students deserve an opportunity to learn. English is an essential part of school, and the knowledge gained from our English classes will help students in their other studies and beyond. In my classes, students will practice critical thinking, synthesis, communication, and argumentation.
