Hello! I received my B.A. in English from Stanford University and spent a few years gaining experience in the field of education, working as a paraeducator and learning support specialist, before earning my credential at UC Davis. Currently, I am pursuing an MA in English from Middlebury College's Bread Loaf School of English, which means I'm always writing, researching, and studying to become a more effective teacher. I strive to facilitate and participate in a community of learners and to possess both a strong sense of self-efficacy as well as the humility to be a "student of my students." Students learn best when they encounter engaging material and passionate, knowledgeable instructors who care about them. As I embark on my second year at Oak Ridge High School, it will be my goal to provide quality education in English Language Arts while demonstrating how learning and being part of a community go hand in hand.
