Greetings and welcome! It is an honor for me to be part of the El Camino High School team. I currently teach two sections of Freshman English Honors and three sections of Freshman English CP.
Goal: My goal throughout the course of the year is to help students build on how to closely and attentively read and analyze critical works of literature and an array of nonfiction text. There will be an emphasis on developing creativity and innovation, critical thinking and problem solving, collaboration and communication. Students will participate in and produce high quality of works within these aspects of communication - reading, writing, listening, and speaking - all of which will align with the new Common Core State Standards.
Education: I completed my Bachelor's degree, Teaching Credential, and Master's Degree at Cal Poly Pomona. I've also completed several online courses as part of my ongoing learning and professional growth.
Teaching Experience: This is my third year at El Camino High School and my 14th year overall in teaching. I have taught 7 years in elementary school, 4 years in middle school, and now this is my third year in high school. I am enjoying every chapter of my teaching career!
Interests/Activities: Traveling is a passion of mine. Most of my holidays and breaks are spent exploring the world, learning about diverse cultures, and enjoying the great outdoors!
