Hello! I'm happy to return to Hillview this year to continue teaching 7th Grade ELA for Pipeline Academy. This is my 18th year teaching middle school and my 15th teaching 7th grade. I started my career at Pajaro Middle School in Watsonville, and after that I taught at Joaquin Miller Middle School in Cupertino for 11 years. I’m very happy to continue my teaching career in MPSCD.
To prepare for teaching, I received my bachelor's degree in Literature from UC Santa Cruz in 1999. Two years later, I received my master's degree in Education (also from UCSC). I consider myself to be a life-long learner, and I am always looking for new learning opportunities. I find that I learn new things each year from my students, too.
I love my career and feel fortunate to say that I truly enjoy to coming to work! I’m looking forward to a fantastic year at Hillview. Please come by and say hello in Room C-11.
