Grade Level Lead Teacher
I am very excited to start my first year at NWC+. I grew up in Los Angeles and pursued my love of the ocean by studying marine science at the University of Washington. I then spent three years teaching marine biology on Catalina Island to middle and high school students. Most recently, I earned master’s degrees in Environmental Science and Education at UC Santa Barbara and taught in the Santa Barbara Unified School District. Outside of the classroom, I love to be in the ocean, especially on SCUBA. I also love to travel and try new foods.
I hope to bring to NWC+ my love of science and the natural world. I want my students to practice thinking critically and understand how science can be applied to solving problems in the world around us. I look forward to the first year of NWC+ and finding ways to support students in pursuing their passions.
