About Me

'We don't see the world as it is, we see it as we are' - Anais Nin

I am a 4th generation Bay Area native, currently living in Santa Cruz. I have been teaching since 2001, and have been full-time at De Anza since 2005. I spent 12 years living in Taos, New Mexico, and 1 year as an International student in France. I speak French and Spanish - not perfectly, but well enough to communicate. I love working with the De Anza students. I want my classes to give students opportunities to know themselves more deeply, to learn in ways that are meaningful to them, and to discover and respect what they already know.
