I'm excited to be teaching at Hale! I have experience teaching seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth and eleventh grade English. This is my eighth year teaching at Hale. Before I worked at Hale, I briefly taught at Canoga Park High School. Besides teaching, I enjoy doing yoga, shopping at the farmers' market, and hanging with my new daughter, Hazel. After I graduated from El Camino Real High School, I went to UCSB. Go Gauchos! After college I moved to Spain where I taught English. I didn't teach English literature, but rather, English language to Spanish speakers. I even learned Spanish. I then returned to the valley and started work on earning my teaching credential. Many people ask me about my favorite part of teaching. I always tell them: my students make me laugh everyday.
