Degrees and Certifications:
D2 English CCPA since 2017 HS Soccer Hamline University
Although I was born on the East Coast, most of my schooling took place in the Twin Cities where I majored in History with a minor in Urban Education and recieved my BA from Hamline University. Growing up with two immigrant parents offered a different perspective on the world which I carry to this day. Additionally, soccer became my passion and being active outdoors is a must. Shortly after graduating I began teaching at an urban charter school in Minneapolis and it was during this time that I met the wonderful woman who would become my fiance. Her schooling brought us both to Baltimore, Maryland where I taught ELA at KIPP before we both moved to Oakland. I am excited to teach at CCPA and learn about the city and community in which I live. In my free time I enjoy reading espeically current events and non-fiction, working on my house and yard, traveling, sports and most importantly spending time with family and friends.
