• For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a teacher. I have a deep and inarticulate desire to share my passion for English and Theatre. After receiving my Bachelor's in English from CSU Stanislaus, I joined the amazing Merlo team. I could not be happier with the students and staff at our school! When I'm not teaching, I can be found drinking a hot cup of tea, cuddling my dog, reading a good book, acting in local theatre, or traveling with my partner.
