I’m so excited to join High Tech High and the San Diego Teacher Residency this year! After working for over a decade in schools ranging from public, parochial, independent, and international, teaching continues to be my passion and a source of great joy. I am thankful to get to spend my days working with aspiring and experienced teachers here at SDTR. Most recently, I was living with my family in Boston, where I was working toward my doctorate in education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. My work with SDTR this year is a component of completing my doctoral studies. My current research interests include teacher learning, teacher identity development, and teacher preparation. Outside of work, I cherish time spent with my family and love being a mom to two daughters, Cora and Ada. We love camping, exploring, eating, and laughing together.
