I teach 9th and 12th grade English. I can be reached through schoolloop or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Background: I was raised in Concord, MA, but also lived in Moraga, CA for a short time as a child. Since then, I have lived in Ohio, Colorado, Oregon, Czech Republic, France, London, and now, in Dublin with my husband, Mike and our son, Jason, who was born in January 2009. I have been teaching for ten years. In addition, I teach kickboxing and coach tennis. I also love swimming, reading, writing, and anything else outdoors.
Teaching Philosophy: Teaching is the best job in the world, and not a day goes by that I am not inspired or moved by a teenager. I have never been happier or more excited by the passion and opportunities for, and by, educators and students here at Dougherty Valley High School. It is a true pleasure to be a part of this community.
