I love teaching college students and I am deeply interested in learning about my students and supporting them on their journeys. My classes offer opportunities to strengthen writing and reading skills in ways that will support your academic, professional and personal growth and I am eager to watch my students foster your full creative selves. I have a B.A in Womens' Studies and an MA in English Literature and 2 teaching certificates: one in Teaching Post-Secondary Composition and one in Teaching Post-Secondary Reading. I did all of that academic work at SFSU and am very proud of my time here. In my free time I love to hike, take pictures, read, write and work with close friends building a movement for social justice. My other job is as co-director of Prison Radio, a small nonprofit in the Mission District committed to bringing the voices of people living in prison into the public debate.

"She really cares about her students succeeding in her class."
"The class was organized in a way that was easy to follow along and comprehend. The topics we discussed were also relevant to my experiences as a person of color which helped inspire my investment in it."
"She takes the time and extra steps to make the assignments and tasks easy to understand."
"I enjoyed the course and I have become a much better writer because of it."
