My brothers & I were raised on the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis, MD. After college, I moved to New York City and spent a decade teaching, training, and touring in an acting repertory company (SITI). I am still amazed and inspired by the ongoing work of this enduring company. I met my husband in L.A., and we made our way up the coast, spending a bit of time in Santa Maria, CA. Alameda is a wonderful end to the journey!I was born in San Francisco but grew up in Orange County, California. I lived for a year and a half in Madrid, Spain, the country of my heart.
Classrooms are small communities where we have opportunities to practice good citizenship and effective communication. Language and literature are powerful tools for building empathy and curiosity. I hope that as we study classic pieces of literature, students can make connections to their own communities and society. Everybody belongs here!
