About Me

"For the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs."
-George Eliot, Middlemarch


I am a full-time instructor in English at De Anza College. I love working with De Anza students and I'm thrilled to be a part of the De Anza community.

My pedagogical goal is to help students build strong reading, writing, and thinking skills that will serve them both in and out of the classroom. In my writing classes,

  • the work is collaborative - students work with me and with each other.
  • we focus on topics such as magic, education, racism, and migration.
  • I encourage students to understand reading and writing in relation to communities outside of the classroom.

If this sounds like fun, then sign up for a class with me!

I am also a faculty advisor for the Sexuality and Gender Alliance (SAGA), an inclusive LGBTQ club at De Anza. If you are interested in more information about SAGA, you should email the club officers!


Students who are enrolled in my classes can access the syllabus through the Canvas page. Anyone else who is interested in my syllabi should send me an email.
