Degrees and Certifications:
BA - English
I have been in public education since I was born! Both of my parents were public school teachers, so I've always been in a classroom. After graduating from San Jose State University, going to grad school in San Francisco, and spending a year teaching in Japan, I began my own public school career in 1993 when I began teaching English at Half Moon Bay High School. After 9 years I moved to the foothills and taught for a year at Nevada Union High. Since 2003 I have been at Oakmont - my home away from home.
When not grading essays, I can be found spending as much time as possible with my wife and two daughters. I also try to be on my road bike whenever I can. Otherwise, I'll be working on my property, taking care of my tomatoes and chickens, reading, and daydreaming about traveling.
