Something you should know about me...

I was born in England and moved to Southern California when I was about ten years old. I went to high school and college in Southern California where I grew up and lived most of my life. I love history and travelling. I've visited Europe, the Middle East and North America. I'd like to go to Australia, Brazil, Japan and China in the near future. My goal is to help students succeed inside and outside of the classroom. I hope to inspire and motivate students to critically think about the world around them.

My profession is based on 1 thing I love: Art! My teaching philosophy is based on my passion for art and creativity, and that a student can offer much to the world when they study and implement these two qualities. Learning to think and see things from a creative perspective can be an asset to any career choice even if one does not choose to be an artist!

Something you should know about me...

I am one of the RSP teachers here at Leroy Greene Academy. I love helping students of all age and developmental levels. I have taught pre-school, elementary, middle, and high school aged students in the past. I am a very patient, understanding person, and I enjoy seeing the progress that students make throughout each year.

I was born and raised in Sacramento, and even though I moved away for college, I found my way back to wonderful Northern California. I like to stay busy, so I prefer to have activities planned for my free time. Aside from curling up on my couch and enjoying a cup of tea or coffee, while reading a good book, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family as much as I possibly can. I like being outdoors, whether it be for a hike in the hills, a weekend of camping, or a relaxing day at the lake. Warm weather is my favorite! In addition to my love for the outdoors, I love watching, playing, and coaching basketball. It has always been such a big part of my life, and will continue to be. Two other activities that make me extremely happy - Road-trips and concerts! Can't go wrong with some good tunes or exploring a new town.

Lastly, I'd like to add that I am an advocate for acceptance. I believe that everyone is different and awesome in their own unique way, and we all need to learn to embrace that in ourselves and accept it in each other. :)

Hi everyone! I am so excited to join the LGA team this year, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge of both the science and technology worlds with all of you. I am extremely passionate about encouraging more young women to join the STEM fields, and want to help all of my students learn about the importance of science within their communities. When I am not being a huge science nerd, I love watching Giants baseball, traveling, and being a personal trainer. I spent many years playing basketball, and even though I mostly watch these days, it is still a huge passion of mine. If you have any questions, comments, etc. please do not hesitate to contact me.
