I am a 5th grade teacher at a neighborhood public school. I'm fortunate to have found my calling and love going to school every day. One of my biggest goals in the classroom is to create a sense of community: an environment where students can openly share, learn from one another, feel like they belong, and know their voices are heard and thoughts respected.
Outside of the classroom I am a triathlete/budding marathoner who loves running the Berkeley Hills and a foodie with a deep interest in locally grown, sustainable agriculture. I unwind with The Colbert Report.
My fiancée works for Airbnb so I travel on Airbnb often, but almost always under her account. Always looking forward to another adventure, especially if a run's involved!
