I grew up in the Bay Area in California. I moved onto college at Loyola University Chicago, where I completed my B.A. in History in 2011. I moved back to the Bay Area where my career in education began. I worked as a substitute teacher in Palo Alto while working my way through a credential/master’s program at the University of San Francisco, which I graduated from in 2014.
I taught high school social studies in Santa Clara, CA for three years before moving out to Phoenix, where I have been teaching high school since 2016.
I think it is extremely important to let students know that I am here to support and challenge them. I find connecting content to the students’ interest outside the academic world is an effective way to build a solid relationship with them. It allows students to be more engaged with their learning.
I am a massive basketball fan (Go Warriors). In addition, I am very into my barre3 workouts. I love taking road trips and exploring new places and cities.
I offer tutoring services in language arts, social studies, and general homework support.
