Hello students and families! I began my time as a Leyden Eagle during the 2010-2011 school year. While at East, I have taught American Studies, Sociology, Law and Global Studies courses, as well as worked in West's TAPESTRY Program. I cosponsor the student group On Common Group and work in the Guided Study program after school.
Teaching is my passion. I enjoy getting to know my students and seeing them progress as learners throughout their time at East.
My educational philosophy: "Education is lighting a fire, not filling a bucket."
