I'm so excited to start my educator journey here at LA High. I'm originally from Oklahoma but spent my formative years living outside of the United States (Puerto Rico, The Bahamas, and Singapore). I hightailed it back to the United States for my undergrad where I attended the University of Oklahoma and received a BA in Film and Media Studies. I have been in Los Angeles for 11 years and worked in the entertainment industry before making my move into teaching and getting my credential at Cal State LA. My goal as a teacher is to get my students to fall in love with reading and strengthen their skills as writers.
When I'm not in school, I can either be found working on my next screenplay, deep in a Netflix binge, or hanging out with my pup, Lulu. She makes frequent appearances in class Zooms.
I teach the following classes at LA High:
- English 10 Inclusion with Mr. Sahara
- American Literature Inclusion with Mr. Sahara
- American Literature
I ask that students adhere to the following Zoom expectations when they enter class:
If you have any questions, I am just an email away!
