Welcome to Alameda High School Moderate/Severe Program

Welcome to My Classroom


Hi and welcome to my special education classroom.  I teach 9th-12th graders in a functional academics and life skills program at Alameda High School.  This website is for families to use as a resource for their students.

I'm an Education Specialist and local Alamedan.  My family has been living in Alameda since 2004 and love our island living!

Special Education is my passion.  I began my SPed journey as a program facilitator at a non-profit that provided job coaching and academic support to young adults 22+ who were working, taking classes at community colleges and volunteering in the community.  We taught those young adults how to travel on public transit, vocational training, independent living and communication skills in the community.  I learned so much from that experience especially about the importance of developing life skills of independence and functional communication for our students. 

I've been an Education Specialist for 2 years.  I spent my first year teaching 3rd-5th graders in an moderate/severe SDC at Ruby Bridges.  I wanted to explore teaching secondary which led me to a job I LOVE at Alameda High School.
