Dear Students and Parents:
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am looking forwarding to meeting and working with you this coming year. I am a Valencia graduate and I am so proud to be a teacher at VHS. After high school, I attended Cal State Fullerton where I received my B.A. in English in 2005. I returned to Cal State Fullerton to complete my Single Subject credential in English. I earned my master's degree in Educational Administration from Concordia University in 2010. This is my 16th year here as a teacher and I know together we will make it a fantastic year
My college prep LA3 and LA2 classes will be using Canvas as a learning platform in addition to Google Classroom.  I will be going over all of this in the first few weeks of class.  
My LA3 IBHLY1 class will use Google Classroom for assignments. 
Please see the class syllabus (on Google Classroom for IB, Canvas for LA3 and LA2)  for specifics on grading, assessments, and expectations.   
Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have. Email is the best way to reach me. Another great place to get information is from your Aeries account. I will use Aeries to report on student assessments, email students and parents, and provide feedback.  Aeries is our official grade book.   I actively use Google Classroom, so please make sure to check our Google Classroom page for links and tutorials . Thank you in advance for your commitment to success this year!
