Welcome to my Digital Portfolio!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my Digital Portfolio. The picture above is me surrounded by birds in London. I might look a little uneasy because I have an intense fear of birds (it's a long story). The other picture is me performing in "The Sound of Music" on Mount Helix. I love to perform, sing, read, create, and teach. Life is good!

I currently teach Language Arts, History, Theater, and the AVID program at Lakeside Middle School in East San Diego County. I have been teaching for 9 years, and I am lucky to have work that challenges and inspires me everyday. One of my favorite expressions about work is from Dorothy Sayers. She said, "Work is a joyous expression of creative energy in service to others." Using creative energy everyday to motivate and inspire kids is my life's work.
