Degrees and Certifications:
I came to teaching after a few years exploring language and culture in graduate school in Sociology at UCLA. I attended the Stanford Teacher Education Program and student taught at Hillsdale in 2007-08 with Ms. Crockett, and have been teaching freshman and sophomore English in Florence House ever since! I am passionate about literacy and helping students cultivate the tools to discover literature on their own terms. My favorite book to teach is Lord of the Flies, but outside of class, I am a devoted fan of Jane Austen and Andre Iguodala, both artists in their own right.
