I chose to work at SSFHS because... I chose to work at South San Francisco High School because I wanted to work with a diverse student population at a dynamic Bay Area high school. South City is one of the most diverse schools in the United States, and represents the melting pot that is the Bay Area. The "Warrior" family represents more than 75 different countries and a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds.  I thought this atmosphere would be challenging and personally rewarding, and over the course of the last 10 years it has been!

 


Teaching background:  The 2016-2017 school year marks my eleventh year teaching Health and my fourth year teaching AP U.S. History at South San Francisco High School. Our pass rates on the AP test have consistently met or exceeded national pass rates and we are expanding our involvement in the annual History Day competition after making it to the finals for the last three years in documentary film and nationals in 2015. I will not be Health this year. In addition to teaching, I am very active in advising Earth Club and Amnesty International. Prior to relocating to the Bay Area, I completed my student teaching at Goleta Valley Junior High School where I taught World History, and Modern World History at San Marcos High School in Santa Barbara. Before attending UCSB, I completed a year of pre-professional work at Santa Ynez High School where I taught US History, first worked with English language learners, and assisted in an AP European History class. And, before radically transforming my life and becoming a teacher, I was based out of Los Angeles and worked in marketing and advertising where I specialized in higher education and corporate recruiting.

Education:  Master's in Education, University of California, Santa Barbara; AP Trained and College Board Approved - Stanford University; Certificate in Smart Marketing for the New Economy, Haas School of Business, University of California - Berkeley; Bachelor of Science in Journalism with a dual major in Political Science, Northern Arizona University


 

 

The best thing about teaching is... being able to affect real change in people's lives and having the opportunity to see it.

When I am not at school I am... with my son and husband going on an adventure. We love to travel and visit friends and family.

 

One little known fact about me is... I was a gymnast until I was 13.
