A Little Bit About Me...
I am filled with Aztec PRIDE, not just because I teach here, but because I am an Esperanza alumnus myself! After high school, I earned my Bachelor's Degree, Teaching Credential, and Master's Degree from California State University of Fullerton. 
Since I teach English Language Arts, I enjoy reading and writing, but I also have many other passions. My biggest passion is my family - my husband, Paul, my daughter, Violet, and our two rescue pups, Zoey and Zero. I love animals, camping, playing games, listening to music, attending live concerts, binge-watching quality and non-quality television alike, and traveling whenever and wherever possible. I've been to many places, near and far, and thoroughly value learning about new cultures and experiencing new things.
I can't wait to jump into my 10th year teaching at EHS and to meet all of my new students. Let's make it a great year, Aztecs!
