Prior to my role as a classroom teacher I worked as an instructional aide at Canyon for four years, and was lucky to do my student teaching here as well. Nothing makes me happier than being in a classroom, on my feet, and having fun with my students through the learning process. Growing up in Malibu, I passed by Canyon countless times and always imagined working here. I am a graduate of Loyola Marymount University where I received my MA in Elementary Education and my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I have always felt extremely lucky to work in such a fantastic community like Canyon. I am dedicated to helping students become self-regulated learners with critical thinking skills to guide them through challenges they are passionate about while providing a space where students feel safe to share their true selves.
