Hello and welcome to my page! This is my 7th year working at PHS and 10th year teaching. Before PHS I worked at Oakland Aviation High School, located in East Oakland.
Growing up on the East Coast (Connecticut), I did not jump directly into teaching after graduating from college. I worked as an auto mechanic for a few years before transitioning to sales. The truth is, I always wanted to be a teacher but had left college without graduating. Going back to school with a full time schedule while also working full time helped turn me into the person I am today. This is why I push my students to get organized, work efficiently, and find their internal motivation(s).
Working at PHS has been an amazing experience and I'm excited for what the future holds...for this year and beyond!
