Cleared Single Subject Teaching Credentials: Chemistry & English



Having worked with students in Los Angeles for the past 5 years, I am delighted to have started working with the Chatsworth Charter High School family this school year. Having a wide range of interests, there is nothing I'd rather do for a living than teach high school science. I've taught Chemistry, AP Environmental Science, Genetics, Physiology, and Anthropology, as well as a variety of online English courses. 
It’s important for me to be prepared to address the diverse needs of students, giving them the support they need so that all can achieve their academic goals. My commitment is to fostering collaborative and interesting educational environments to encourage and develop thoughtful and productive students who take pride in their learning.
Students learn that I’m flexible, dedicated, and that I will work hard to help prepare them to achieve their goals. 

As a curious, adventurous person, I have many interests. I do a fair bit of writing and gaming, in addition to doing other things like hiking, short trips, and interesting adventures that come my way.
