Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome Blair Students, Parents and Guardians!
I have been teaching middle school English in the Pasadena Unified School District since 2004. I have recently obtained my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instructional Design through Western Governor's University. I am a graduate of the University of Southern California (B.A. in Print Journalism and B.A. in Ethnic Studies) and Cal State Northridge (Single Subject English Credential).
I am currently working with the District's C.R.W. Team, to develop a curriculum for 7th and 8th grade English that will align with the new National Standards. I will be implementing the curriculum this year at Blair. Also, I will include I.B. in every aspect of our lessons. I.B. is a key component of our school and the C.R.W. plan as well.
I look forward to working with you and your son(s) or daughter(s)! If you have any questions please contact me! I would like to keep open communication with all parents and guardians to ensure a successful year for all of my students!
