Teacher BIO

With a professional background in photography and graphic design, I began my career in education as a high school Art teacher in Los Angeles, CA, then moved to Hawaii to teach the English Language Learning program at Wilcox Elementary on the island of Kauai. My next stop was the Media program and Yearbook class at Kapaa Middle School. In the fall of 2017, I settled into an Arts and Communications position at Kapaa High School. I really don't like moving schools as much as it may seem.

My personal teaching philosophy encourages all students to contribute, communicate and cooperate in a whole-class effort to create amazing work. Inspiring students to challenge themselves, help each other succeed, achieve their personal goals and be proud of their accomplishments are my primary responsibilities. I involve my students in various service learning projects that extend beyond the classroom because I believe that education is most powerful when practically applied to authentic, real world situations.
