"You can make anything by writing."- C.S. Lewis
I am super excited for my first year with Adventures in Writing Camp! I received my degree in Education from the University of Illinois at Chicago. After graduating I taught 8th grade math for Livermore Valley. This coming year I will be making a big change to teaching the 4th grade in Daly City. When I am not busy in the classroom I continue my love for the sport of soccer by coaching a girl’s soccer team. I enjoy being able to have fun with children inside and outside of the classroom, which is why I am so enthusiastic to be able to be part of the Adventures in Writing Camp this summer.
