This is my 20th year as a teacher. I currently serve as the Literacy TOSA for the Rio School District (Oxnard), with my home base at Rio del Sol STEAM School.

My previous schools were: Cabrillo Middle School (Ventura), Harvard-Westlake School (Studio City), Foothill Technology High School (Ventura), and Balboa Middle School (Ventura).

I've taught grad students at UCSB, journalism advisers in New York City, and teachers in Sierra Leone, West Africa. I was also an education reporter for the Ventura County Star-Free Press.

Sometimes I write here.
