About Me

I am excited to be at O'Farrell for the 2021-2022 school year, and I'm looking forward to working with our 6th graders!
I grew up in Orange County and spent most of my younger years obsessed with sports and books. Baseball and basketball were favorites of mine, and I played both in high school. My reading obsession started with the Captain Underpants books in elementary school and progressed to the Harry Potter series soon after. I still read constantly, but my book choices have changed a bit since those days. My sports obsession has progressed to include a surfing and hiking obsession. Now I'm excited to share all of these interests with my daughter who is just over a year old! 
After graduating from high school, I moved to San Diego to attend UCSD for my Bachelor's Degree. At UCSD, I studied Literature and Education Studies. I've taught at O'Farrell for 4 years, I'm very excited to be returning for another year! 
I look forward to meeting all of the new 6th graders I will be working with, and I can't wait to see what they will accomplish over the course of our year together.
Go Falcons!
