I direct the three orchestras at Garfield High School as well as Guitar 1 and 2. Our Orchestra program consists of Freshman Strings, for all 9th grade string players; Concert Orchestra, which shares wind players with Symphony Band; and Symphony Orchestra, which meets daily as a full orchestra and is enrolled by audition. Guitar 1 is for beginning guitarists and Guitar 2 is for experienced guitarists looking to further their skills.

French teacher


I am the French teacher at Garfield! I currently teach French 2, French 3, and AP French. If you need to reach me, I am available before school starting at 8:10 and after school until around 4. E-mail is also always as good option: I check it every day other than Saturday.

,Personal Message

Through my travels and my studies at the University of Washington (for both my Master's and Bachelor's Degrees), I have discovered a true passion for French language and culture and for working with students to share that passion. I grew up in Seattle, attending Bishop Blanchet HS before UW. In my free time, I enjoy playing volleyball and basketball, reading mystery novels, and playing the piccolo at events with the UW Husky Marching Band Alumni Association.
