I launched my teaching career at Royal Oak Middle School teaching drama. Next, I served for 17 years working with students as a teacher at Redlands High School. I taught a Perkins approved Arts Media and Entertainment Program of Study in Media Arts. In addition, I designed the curriculum for the entire media arts program.
While at Redlands High School I also taught English 9-12 and Screenwriting as Literature. I served as the Career Technical Education Department Chair, and was an active member of the leadership team through two WASC accreditation cycles. At the University of Redlands, I taught a variety of courses in the Preliminary Teacher Credential Program.
My goal is to share my enthusiasm for education. I want to support schools that are safety-zones for learning where students, teachers, administrators, and community members collaborate to achieve excellence in academics and activities. Together, we will excel at preparing students for college, career, and life.
