I am a native San Franciscan and a product of San Francisco Unified public schools. I have lived in many other places including Utah, Wisconsin and Nepal, but I always end up back at home.
My interests include bike riding, playing basketball, painting, silk screening, cooking, reading, writing, photography, traveling abroad, studying languages, camping, backpacking and teaching.
I’m a very curious person and am constantly learning new things everyday. I hope to bring a love of life-long learning to all of the classes that I teach. Over the past five summers I have traveled to Guatemala, Nepal, India, Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Colombia. I aspire to bring a multi-cultural and worldly perspective to the classroom. In the summer of 2009 I had the opportunity to bring a delegation of Lincoln to students to Nicaragua for an education trip with the organization Global Glimpse. This past summer I spent five weeks in Colombia, on the Island of Old Providence as part of a Fund For Teachers fellowship. I conducted an oral history project, recorded 8 interviews and am in the processing of creating a webpage to showcase them. I am excited to start my fifth year at Lincoln as the Department Chair of Social Studies. Go Mustangs!
