I am a local musician and performing art enthusiast that has grown up right here in Butte County. I am a teacher by passion, and a musician at heart. I have known that I wanted to be a teacher ever since I can remember. For the past 5 years I have been teaching in alternative high school education. I am very excited to be the new English teacher for both Durham High and Intermediate Schools. I have a B.A. in Social Science and I am currently working my way through grad school to obtain an M.A. in Education as well as a student services credential. I am looking forward to being a part of this beautiful and amazing community and for the opportunity to be the person I needed when I was in grade school.
