“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.” Philip Pullman
In addition to my role as Marin Area Coordinator, I work directly with my own independent study students. (And, like many of my colleagues at Pathways, I wear a number of other hats, as well.) Interested and involved in alternative education since my teens, I joined Pathways during its first year, in the spring of 2003.
As a young adult, I worked at law firms and considered a career as an attorney; in due course, however, I returned to my first passion: teaching. I received my undergraduate degree in Humanities at UC Berkeley, my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential at SF State, and I am currently pursuing my Administrative Services Credential at Sonoma State. Prior to my arrival at Pathways, I privately home-schooled my own daughter (who also spent her middle school years as a PCS student). In addition to my work at Pathways, I am a volunteer writing tutor with the Prison University Project at San Quentin.
I am grateful to be a part of the diverse community of students, families, and staff that is Pathways.
