Here's a little bit about me and my qualifications:
I am a Redding native and returned to the area several years ago. I have a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and a Master's degree in English from CSU, Chico. I began my teaching career in Las Vegas, teaching writing classes at the College of Southern Nevada. From there, I ventured into writing and editing for various magazines and newspapers. I taught 9th and 10th grade English at Trinity High School in Weaverville before joining the University Preparatory School family in 2008. I completed the invitational summer institute with the Northern California Writing Project, and am a teacher-consultant with the National Writing Project. I am also a member of the Holocaust Educator's Network. I recently completed the Expository Reading and Writing course through CSU, Chico.
I am a writer for Enjoy Magazine, which keeps my skills sharpened. I'm also the co-advisor of the Big Brother/Big Sister Program, as well as one of the 8th grade class advisors. I love the San Francisco Giants, the San Francisco 49ers, USC football, and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
