World History in Room 17
In July 2016 I traveled to Maui for my honeymoon. I love pineapples! We visited Maui Gold Pineapple Farm where we got to harvest pineapples and eat them! In June Ms. Fairchild and I took students to Cuba where we saw many classic American cars.

I am very excited to be starting my fourth year of teaching at Crocker Middle School. This year I will be teaching 7th grade World History.
Background Info: I grew up in San Carlos, California and have been a fan of Bay Area sports my entire life. For undergrad I attended UC Santa Barbara, a lovely school located right next to the ocean. I studied History and one of my favorite classes was the History of Surfing. While at UCSB I worked at the campus radio station, KCSB FM 91.9, where I produced a weekly two hour blues/R&B/soul show. From 2012-2013 I attended Stanford University where I obtained my Masters and credential in Social Science. This past July I married my best friend at Saratoga Springs!
Hobbies/Interests:In my free time I love to be active. I play in a soccer league every Monday and Wednesday night, swim, hike and run. When I'm not playing sports, I enjoy gardening, cooking and black and white photography. I love to read, listen to vinyl records and spend time with family and friends. During the summer I enjoying travelling. This summer I visited Cuba, Maui & Virginia.
