Location: SAVA Charter School South Sacramento: George Sim Center
Position:  Independent Study Teacher – Multiple Subjects

Education: J.D., M.S.

About me:  Hi. I came to SAVA with professional experiences in various academic programs, primarily in Alternative Education where I taught in public and private classroom and charter settings, creative teaching hybrid models for GED, ESL, Adult Learners, and Independent Study. My experiences have also resulted in Adjunct Faculty teaching, Spanish mentoring, Educational Administration, and Correctional Education.

I enjoy motivating and working with credit recovery and “promise” students, juveniles or adults who are part of the criminal justice system, either probation or parole, and other high risk offenders in community-based or transitional reintegration programs to ensure they reach their personal, academic, and professional goals for success. I believe every student can learn and achieve their desires and as a result set high expectations to ensure their preparation and focus toward a goal of higher education in the future. I have been very fortunate to have worked with so many wonderful students and to be a small part of their amazing journey.

Interests:  I enjoy spending time with family, test preparation strategies, conducting research, watching movies, taking pictures, criminal justice and law related matters, and traveling, particularly to new places.
