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 love working with De Anza students, as they continue to teach me more every day. I spent 12 years living in New Mexico, and 1 year as an International student in France. I speak French and Spanish - not perfectly, but well enough to communicate. 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.
