About the Teacher
"We learn by example and by direct experience because there are real limits to the adequacy of verbal instruction." ~Malcolm Gladwell
I am so excited to be your teacher and guide you through your junior year studying English. I am thrilled to get to know each and every one of y'all. Here's a little bit about me to get us started. This 2018-19 school year marks my seventh year as a teacher and my fourth year at Liberty Charter High School. I truly feel beyond blessed to be doing something I am passionate about at a place I love. California is home to me, I was born and raised here, but I have a fond affection for the Pacific Northwest and visit as often as I can. I love to explore new places on the many vacations we are blessed with as students and teachers. When I am not at school, or grading your papers, you can find me with a book and a cup of coffee, somewhere outside with my sweet dog.
Let's have a great year together,
