I am so excited to join the amazing staff at Alvarado Intermediate School! For the 2018-2019 school year I will be teaching 8th grade Language Arts, History Social Sciences, and AVID.
I was born and raised in Southern California, and have spent most of my life here! I graduated from the University of Arizona with a B.S. in Psychology (Go Wildcats!). I worked for several years in the field of social work before deciding to pursue a career in education. I earned my teaching credential and M.A. in Digital Teaching and Learning from Azusa Pacific University.
In my free time, I enjoy doing anything outdoors - camping, fishing, hiking and even sky diving! I am an avid viewer of The Office and any sports games (Go Braves!). Overall, I try to include joy and laughter into everything I do, including learning.
I look forward to working with the Alvarado community to create a great school year full of HONOR!
