Degrees and Certifications:
I am very pleased to be introducing myself to you as the 8th Grade English Language Arts teacher. I am new to Black Diamond Middle School and this is my first job as a teacher.
I am from Great Britain and have lived in the USA for 16 years. My husband’s job brought us to Illinois from Great Britain in 2004 before we moved to California in 2008. I have four children who are 16, 19, 21, and 23 years old. In Great Britain I worked as a lawyer and since we have lived in the USA, I have worked as a doula, a nanny and a Crisis Line Worker. I chose to become a teacher after I discovered I had a passion for helping people learn.
I am very excited to be working with you. 2020 has been challenging for everyone but I know we will help the students navigate online learning to make it a positive experience.
