7th Grade History
7th Grade Level Advisor
I have been the 7th grade history teacher at New West Charter since 2011. For the past three years, I have also served as co-director of the New West Summer Bridge program for incoming 6th graders.
This is my eleventh full year in the classroom. Previously I taught at several other charter schools in the LA area, after earning my BA in History in 2005 and my Masters in Teaching in 2007 from the University of Southern California. I grew up in Portland, Oregon but have lived in and around Los Angeles since 2001.
Outside of New West, I read books, watch basketball, and sometimes read books about basketball. Since 2013, I have enjoyed collaborating on these activities with my 4 ½-year-old son. (My wife enjoys them much less than we do.)
