This year, I am teaching World Literature and Composition and PIB 10 World Lit and Comp. I am from Washington, DC, and have lived in Boulder for 17 years. I enjoy hiking and cross-country skiing in the mountains, but I also love cities: the hustle and bustle, the art and culture, even the grime and noise. I taught middle school until my daughter, Martina, was born. She is now in first grade at Whittier Elementary School. This is my seventh year at Fairview, and I am very happy to be a part of this community. I love spending time with my family, travelling, and, of course, reading.
