I am thrilled to be returning to Ocean Shore as its principal. Before attaining my administrative credential, I was a middle school and high school teacher. Over the course of fifteen years (six at Ocean Shore), I taught English, History, and Speech/Debate. All my teaching experience has been in San Francisco and San Mateo Counties, and I’ve taught students at all levels from developmental reading to Advanced Placement English. I have an M.A. in English from Rutgers University and a B.A. in American Government with a minor in Women’s Studies from Georgetown University. I am passionate about equity in education. In 2008, I helped launch the Pacifica Education Foundation and was its first president. I am also the mother of two teenagers, three cats, a bearded dragon, a grey-banded kingsnake, and an angelfish. Back in the days when I had free time, I enjoyed reading novels, hiking, lifting weights, baking and listening to live music. I still try to engage in most of these activities when I get the chance. I look forward to working with you to ensure the best possible educational experience for all of our students at Ocean Shore. We will survive this pandemic together. #OSS strong!
