I began my teaching career at Sierra Mountain Middle School in Truckee. I taught Math and Science as a 6th grade teacher. When Alder Creek opened, I continued teaching 6th grade up until 2007 when I moved to South America to teach.
I lived in Santiago Chile and taught at a British/Chilean school for 10 years. I taught Math, general Science, Physics and Chemistry to 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders. In 2017 I moved back to California and began teaching Technology at Alder Creek Middle School.
I was born in San Jose, California and moved to the Lake Tahoe area in 1990 to follow my passions of skiing, fishing, hiking and outdoor adventure.
