I teach 8th Grade PE. This is my first year teaching PE full time, but I have been teaching at Sylvandale for 14 years. I enjoy camping, hiking, traveling and watching, playing and coaching sports. I coached girl’s basketball for 11 years. Coaching basketball at Sylvandale and sports in general have really helped me to be able to relate to my students. I played college basketball at CSUMB and Cabrillo college before giving up basketball and focusing on school. I decided to transfer to SJSU, then later graduated and received my teaching credential from SJSU.
