About Me February 24, 2012

I have been teaching in Oceanside Unified School District for 11 years. I spent the first five years teaching at Clair Burgener Academy, an alternative high school, for at-risk ninth and tenth grade students.

I currently teach seventh grade language arts, yearbook, and an elective where I use photography as a tool to inspire literacy at Jefferson Middle School.  During the seven years that I have been at JMS, I have also taught AVID and ASB, and have served as the Language Arts department chair. Jefferson Middle School is located in beautiful Oceanside, CA. We serve a diverse population of students, including children from nearby Camp Pendleton military base.

I recently graduated from High Tech High Graduate School of Education, earning a M.Ed in Teacher Leaderhip. I even published a book that recounts my year-long action research project!  The two years I spent at HTH GSE was the most influential time I have spent as an educator.

This portfolio contains projects that I completed in 2012 for Leading Edge Certification in conjunction with the San Diego County Office of Education.
