• Hello! I am excited to start my ninth year at HCA.  I currently teach and lead our English Language Learner Department and our Mental Health Matters Class. I am also the department chairperson for English.   My classes focus on understanding information and developing students voice. That means I love helping students find out what they have to say and helping them find the words to say it best. I was born and raised in Stockton and have been teaching for 24 years in Stockton area schools.
