. I tutor every day during lunch and after school, so all are invited in to get help on work, come in to talk with friends, or just sit and take a break.
I have been teaching at EHS since 2003, and love working with the other great teachers, staff, and administrators who come to work every day like I do, to help kids.
Prior to working as a teacher, I was a staff writer for the Wisconsin state capitol, a few political candidates, and a director/copy writer for a Milwaukee advertising firm. When I moved to California, I worked for the California Associations Institute, and started a small construction business for local builders in north county. How did I end up in education? Well, I started volunteering as a court-appointed special advocate for the North County Juvenile Courts in the early 2000's, and was so rewarded with the work I was doing with children that I didn't want to do anything other than work with teens, and help them get ready for the world.
