I began teaching at Innovations in the 2010/11 school year and have enjoyed each year for all of the joy it brings. I’ve been an educator for over 25 years, beginning as a gymnastics coach and camp counselor, working as a classroom teacher, tutor, yoga teacher, and, most recently, homeschooling my kids for four years. I look forward to having the opportunity to create a community of home educated learners, something I missed as a homeschooling parent.
I love teaching. It is what I do and who I am. I love exploring the world with others, sharing knowledge, making connections, creating, experimenting, and playing. Together, we discover more about ourselves and our place in our communities.
I got my BA in English at UC Berkeley and my teaching credential at UC Berkeley’s Bay Area Writing Project. I have two boys, Ben (10) and Aiden (8). We came to San Diego eight years ago. Before coming here we lived in Cambridge MA, Oxford England, and San Francisco CA. We love to travel, camp, hike, read, write, dance, make music, do yoga, play soccer, basketball, and chess.
