What do you like about working at University High School?

Each day I’m excited to come to work. I love working with our wonderful students, collaborating with thoughtful coworkers, and being in this space.

Personal Information

Besides relaxing at home with my daughter, partner, cats, and chickens, I also run a group devoted to literacy called Word On The Street. We build weird structures like tiny libraries and bookmobiles and give away free books.
