I am a born and raised Seattleite. I went to St. Luke, Seattle Prep, Santa Clara University, and Seattle University. After getting my BA at Santa Clara, I joined the Jesuit Volunteer Corps where I taught science in the Bronx, New York. After volunteering for a year, I returned home to get my masters at Seattle University and have been teaching at OLL since 2015. I believe education should be as fun as it is informative. I emphasize project-based learning and learning through doing. Kids and adults should strive to learn something new every day. In my free time I participate in a softball league, bowling league, trivia league and volleyball league which keep me busy and entertained.
