This will be my fifteenth year teaching middle school in San Lorenzo.  I work in the mornings at the district office as a liaison for our new teacher mentoring program.  In the afternoons, I will be teaching 7th grade Language Arts & Social Studies at Bohannon.  When I’m not teaching, I enjoy cooking, being outdoors, and watching the Warriors win.  I also have two boys at home who like to play sports, draw and read.

Inspired by
"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you.  What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” - Jane Goodall

College
I am a banana slug and attended the University of California, Santa Cruz.  I received my teaching credential and Masters in Education at Mills College in Oakland. 

District Tools I Use 

Attendance
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App.

Report Cards
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.

Gradebook
I use the Aeries Gradebook, so students and their parent-guardians can view grades through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App.  

Google Classroom
I am using Google Classroom to manage assignments.  If you would like daily or weekly digests of activities and missing assignments, I can invite you as a guardian.  Please email me with your request and email address.
