Degrees and Certifications:
As both a graduate of and teacher at Pinole Valley High School, I feel a special affinity with all things Spartan, especially our student body. I spent fourteen years here as a member of the Department of World Languages, teaching Spanish One and Spanish Two in an effort to sharpen intellectual skills, increase future earning power, broaden cultural awareness and understanding,and pave the pathway to good global citizenship for our students. In 2016, I agreed to take some time out of the classroom to work as a Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA) for the greater good of PVHS as a whole. Among my current duties are: WASC coordination, International Baccalaureate research and development, data collection and analysis, member of the Instuctional Leadership Team (ILT), member of the Student Site Council (SSC) and general liaison to the administration.
