I am very excited to begin my fifth year teaching here at South Pasadena Middle School. Middle School is a remarkable time for students, filled with intellectual curiosity and immense creativity. I strive to guide students through this time with rigorous, imaginative classroom experiences. Before teaching at SPMS I taught 7th and 8th grade at Arroyo Seco Museum Science Magnet in the Los Angeles Unified School District. When not teaching, I enjoy swimming competitively with the Rose Bowl Masters, going to the beach and hiking with my family.
