Resource to Principal through June 2017

Although I have been an educator for almost a decade, I haven’t always been in the teaching profession. I have worked in the retail industry and as a locksmith and I have also served in church ministry for over 10 years. My focus in ministry was primarily working with junior high, senior high and college age ministry, as well as teaching and occasionally preaching. This is where I discovered my passion for education. I went back to school to get my degree in order to teach in the classroom setting, and graduated from Sacramento State with a BA in History. I was hired by Bethany Lutheran School in 2007 and I have taught middle school History, PE and Bible for the last seven years, as well as some on-site administrative duties as needed. I hold a clear teaching credential and I am currently completing my Master of Arts, Educational Leadership & Administrative Services Credential program at Brandman University. Some of my hobbies include cross-training, music, camping, reading and cheering on my hometown teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers, Kings and Lakers!
