About Me
 
I graduated from UC San Diego in 1999 and received my credential from Mills College in 2002. I am a Bay Area native who has been teaching since 2002 and at San Lorenzo High School since 2003. I love this school because of all of the amazing students and teachers who make it so great.
 
Courses Taught
 
AP English Language and Composition
This  course cultivates the reading and writing skills that students need for college success and for intellectually
responsible civic engagement. The course guides students in becoming curious, critical, and responsive readers of diverse texts and becoming flexible, reflective writers of texts addressed to diverse audiences for diverse purposes. The reading and writing students do in the course should deepen and expand their understanding of how written language functions rhetorically: to communicate writers’ intentions and elicit readers’ responses in particular situations.
