Started at O'Dowd:
B.A. Psychology & History, UC Berkeley M.A. Theology, USF
Why I Teach:
Because I love to work with teens and their energy, and I am excited about my faith and want to share it. I feel that more knowledge about Scripture and Christian teaching can help give young adults much-needed tools for the real world.
Most powerful teaching technique:
I think providing some guidelines for a project or skit and then letting the students teach or share.
Why are the subjects you teach important?:
Religious studies provides some type of framework where morals and values can be discussed and can provide tools for success.
