My nineteen years in the classroom include a year teaching in the Oakland Unified School District, four years as an English teacher at Marine View Middle School, twelve years at Oak View Elementary in the fourth and fifth grades, and two years at Lake View's STEAM school. Prior to becoming a teacher I served as an Americorps (domestic Peace Corps) volunteer with Partners in School Innovation in San Francisco. I am thrilled to return to Oak View to join the innovative fifth grade program. As part of the STEAM program I teach the elements of art. I also include technology and project based learning in the curriculum. I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico and am married with a daughter in college. She is a graduate of the Ocean View School District.
