This is my 3rd year at O'Farrell and my 7th year teaching overall. I went to the University of St. Andrews in Scotland and completed my MA in Teaching at the University of Southern California. I am passionate about language as a mode of empowerment and I want all students to feel their voice is important (and to know how to use it effectively).
When I'm not in class, you'll often find me outdoors with my husband Dave: camping, hiking, backpacking, biking, and playing sports like Ultimate Frisbee. My favorite kind of stories are mysteries. I also love crafts, like knitting, and puzzles. I'm very close to my family and recently became an aunt - 2 twin nephews and 1 niece! I am so excited to travel through the year with you!
