  • I was born in Washington DC and grew up in Virginia. Before moving to Oregon, I served 5 years in the US Army. I moved to Portland almost twenty years ago.

    I’ve been working in the Tigard-Tualatin School District for over 12 years. I started in the High School Completion Program, which was located at the Durham Education Center (DEC). In addition, I taught Social Studies, English, and Science at Cordero a small satellite program of the DEC. Currently, I am teaching Economics and Government at DEC and I am helping students with all social studies courses at TTOA.

    I received a Master’s in Education from PSU. I did most of my undergraduate studies at PSU and earned a Bachelor of Science in History, Political Science, and Social Science.   I also received a Certificate of Completion in Computer Operations from Central Texas College.
