After joining TFA (Teach For America) in 1998 and teaching in Houston for 4 years I moved to San Diego and taught at Morse High. While at PL, I have also taught 9th and 10th grade English, helped found our Writer's Workshop program and coached 9th grade girls' volleyball for five years. I love music and travel, reading and art, contemporary fiction and the Chicago Cubs. My wife and I have been happily married for 18 years and have two daughters aged 14 and 11. We have 2 kitty cats and a 14 year old rescue dog, Buddy. I love to read and write and run our AP and Am.
