Learning Diversity Teacher

I grew up on the west coast of the United States in both quiet and rural Oregon as well as busy and sunny San Diego, California.  My teaching experience has been at public high schools and middle schools in southern California.  As an English Language Arts teacher, my focus is on working with and supporting English Learners and students with special learning needs.  In my time away from the classroom, I enjoy camping, hiking, reading all sorts of fiction, gardening, and spending time with my family and pets.
