This Year:
This year, I am teaching one section of Theater Arts, two sections of A.P. English Literature, and three sections of English 2.
About Me:
This is my 4th year teaching at Damien High School and my 6th year teaching overall. Previously, I have taught as an adjunct English instructor at ITT Technical Institute and in the writing center at Cal State Fullerton.
Academic Background:
I graduated with a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Redlands in 2012, then earned an M.A. in English Literature from Cal State Fullerton in 2015. My Master's dissertation focused on aesthetic marginalia, but I also take a great interest in thriller and horror literature written specifically for children and young adults. Next on the list: a PhD!
I'm In To:
  • Reading! 
  • Traveling
  • My dog
  • A very large cup of coffee in the mornings
  • An extra cheese-y grilled cheese (not necessarily in the mornings)
