Meet the Coaches
I am thrilled to be an Instructional Technology Coach at BHHS. I grew up in West Los Angeles and attended University High School and UCLA . After graduation, I moved to Europe, where I lived for seven years before returning to the Golden State.
I have been a teacher since 2004. My passion is helping other educators innovate their practices to enhance student engagement and learning. I hold Master's degrees in Italian and Education (Educational Technology) and I am a graduate of the University of Geneva’s School of Translation and Interpretation.
A lifelong learner who believes firmly in the power of collaboration, I present frequently at formal and informal conferences and relish every chance I have to expand my professional learning network. I am proud to be an ISTE Certified Educator, a Google Certified Innovator, Trainer, and Coach, CUE Innovative Educator, Leading Edge Certified Educator, EdTechTeam presenter, and a CUE Rock Star Faculty Member. One of my most deeply held beliefs is that education should be fun for both teacher and student.
In my spare time, I love to cook, read, and travel. I also enjoy watching Jeopardy! with my family. Sometimes I even let them win.
I am excited to be part of the BHHS team as an Instructional Technology Coach. I grew up on the East Coast, spending most of my time in NYC! Before joining the world of education I was a script supervisor for film and television.
I am dedicated to collaborating with teachers to design and implement innovative, engaging, technology-rich curriculum that will enhance student learning. I am passionate about finding the best resources that will allow all learners to thrive at their own pace. I truly believe that education is the foundation for a fulfilling, prosperous life.
I hold a Master's in Educational Technology, and am always looking for opportunities to grow as a professional. To that end, I am a proud ISTE Certified Educator, Google Educator Groups co-leader, Google Certified Coach and Trainer, Raspberry Pi Certified Educator, Common Sense Ambassador, and Copyright and Ethics Certified Educator.
For fun I enjoy hiking, surfing and cooking! I also love to build puzzles and have a dedicated puzzle table in the family room.
