What is your commitment to urban education and why have you chose to work at SHPS?

I believe every kid deserves to have the skills necessary to earn a college degree.

What are your greatest highlights in working in education?

My greatest highlights are seeing the growth of every scholar, especially in their research essays every term. I also love Sac High’s graduation ceremonies. 

What book ( fiction or non-fiction) has influenced you the most?

The three books that have influenced me the most are Wherever You Go, There You Are by Jon Kabat Zinn, A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn, and Your Money or Your Life by Joseph Dominguez and Vicki Robin.

Anything else you’d like your future colleagues to know about you? 

I love to get outdoors! Someday, I will hike the Pacific Crest Trail.
