I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in 7th grade. I love teaching and getting to know each and every one of my students. I grew up in San Diego and went to UC San Diego where I received a bachelors in chemistry, masters in chemistry, masters in education, and my teaching credential. I have been teaching chemistry since 2012 and am always looking for ways to grow as an educator. I am married and have a 3 year old son and love any type of physical activity from backpacking to sports.
