Greetings - My teaching career began in London in 1984. Moving back to the States a few years later, I ended up in Southern California and now, Arizona. With this variety of experiences, I am able to bring a rigorous and relevant educational experience to the academic learners who enter my classroom.
Defining Moment in Education - My first teaching job was as an "American" English teacher. I had to relearn my own language to be understood. It taught me to be very flexible.
Core Educational Belief - We need to respect each other and make good choices. Problem solving is essential to fulfilling our dreams.
Prior Experience - English teacher at: St. David & St. Katherine School (London), John C. Fremont HS (Los Angeles), Aliso Niguel HS (Orange County, CA), Catalina Foothills HS (Tucson)
