• Dear Parents and Staff,

    It is with great pride and honor that I have the privilege to serve the students and staff at
    Heartland Alternative Education Center for the current 2019-2020 school year. Please know that
    I am committed to ensuring that every one of our students within our excellent programs receives
    a high- quality education towards advancement for college and career readiness. Through your
    cooperation and support, in collaboration with our wonderful teachers, we can ensure that each
    one of our students progresses both academically and socially.

    This is my fifth year working for Selma Unified School District. Prior to coming to Heartland, I
    worked for three years at Eric White Elementary. During those first two years, I worked as a
    third-grade teacher, before becoming one of the site’s Program Managers. After working at Eric
    White, I served as the Assistant Principal at Abraham Lincoln Middle for two years. Prior to
    teaching in Selma, I worked as a middle school teacher in both 7th & 8th grades. I received my
    undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley, my Multiple Subject and Master of History degrees
    from CSU Fresno, and my administrative credential from National University. I am looking
    forward to a great and productive school year filled with growth and positive gains. Please know
    that my door is always open for any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you again for
    your time and support, it is greatly appreciated and valued towards further helping our students
    succeed both within and outside of the classroom.
