Welcome

I am a fan of the blended learning model (this is a great resource) and am using it to constantly fine-tune my teaching to best meet the needs of my students. 

I hope to help guide you in your journey to most effectively use technology in your classroom. Let me know if you have any questions or great ideas that I may not be aware of. I hope to learn from you as well. I'd love to share any practices or ideas that you have.

Background

I currently teach English at Mt. Pleasant High School in San José, CA. I have been an educator since just after graduating from San José State University in 2000. I earned a BA in English from SJSU. I received my single subject teaching credential from The National Hispanic University.

 

I have been a corporate blogger for Blogmutt (Verblio), an online-article writer for CrowdSource, a résumé writer for Talent:Inc and a technical writer for National Semiconductor. 

I was awarded an IISME fellowship, been a member of the SJSU honors society, Tau Delta Phi, and won the Rising Star Article Award. I am a Level 2 Certified Google Educator and a Level 1 Certified Flipgrid Educator.
