Personal Experience

As one of five children in an active family, I grew up playing and loving sports from a very young age.  In high school I played volleyball, basketball, softball and tennis competitively. From there I went on to play college basketball at California State University East Bay and was later inducted to the CSUEB Hall of Fame in 2010. I cherish the opportunities and lifelong friendships that sports have provided.  Now days I continue to play basketball, beach volleyball, ride bikes, lift weights, hike, swim, do yoga and watch sunsets.  In addition to being physically active, I also love a good book and spending time with my family and friends.

Professional Experience

Being active has been an incredibly positive experience in my life and encouraging students form a young age to set healthy physical fitness habits is what motivates me.  I knew early on that becoming a Physical Education teacher was a perfect match for my skills and interests.  After completing my teaching credential at CSUEB, I taught at Cesar Chavez and Barnard-White Middle Schools in Union City.  While raising three kids of my own, I taught PE part time at Alameda Christain School for grades K-8th grade.  In addition to my professional teaching experience, I have enjoyed over 10 years of coaching in the Alameda Youth Basketball and Soccer leagues.  Also I have been blessed to be able to help coach some of my youngest brothers Special Olympics teams.
