About Me


I am a veteran high school English teacher, a Google Certified Teacher and the Digital Lead Teacher at Point Loma High School in San Diego, CA.  For extra fun and excitement I am also adjunct faculty at the University of San Diego where I teaches Literacy in the Content Areas to pre-service teachers. I am a Writing Project fellow with the San Diego Area Writing Project, (2005), and I also teach workshops for the Educational Technology department in San Diego Unified. My passions are literacy and educational technology as practically applied daily in my freshmen English classes. I have been teaching with 1:1 laptops for my students for five years. 

I enjoy presenting at and attending educational conferences. I have presented at NCTE, in 2005, 2009, 2010,  2011 and this fall at the 2012 conference in Las Vegas. I am also a regular presenter at the San Diego CUE conference in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
