After fourteen years of full-time pastoral ministry, I transitioned into public teaching after earning my teaching credential from the Tulare County Office of Education. I am now in my sixth year of teaching English, and am currently the English department co-chair at El Diamante High School in Visalia, CA
Professional Experience: Areas of focus at work include PBIS coaching, integrating technology in the classroom, and leadership in our Media Arts Linked Learning Academy. I have also served as our Link Crew Coordinator, overseeing freshmen orientation and integration through campus small groups.
Recommended Reading: I enjoy reading authors such as C.S. Lewis, R.C. Sproul, J.R.R. Tolkien, and John Steinbeck.
Favorite Bible Verse: One of my favorite verses is Galatians 5:22-23, where Paul lists the fruit of the Spirit. I try to exhibit these qualities in my daily life, wherever I am.
Favorite Activities: I enjoy watching movies, singing, and playing the guitar.
