I am very excited to be a part of the founding faculty at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley Lower School. I am confident that with my wealth of teaching experience I will hit the ground running. As a founding member, I feel that we have a lot of freedom to be creative in deciding the best tools and techniques to be used to impart effective education to our students.

How does it feel to be a founding teacher? Are you ready for this adventure?!
I love new adventures! I've been waiting, like many of our families, for a Lower School to open in the South Bay for years. Teaching younger students really has been my personal passion since I first began teaching and, though I have greatly enjoyed teaching at BASIS Independent Silicon Valley Upper School for the past few years, I am so excited about my move to our new Lower School Campus.

I was also a part of the founding faculty at BASIS Independent Fremont Lower when it opened in 2016 and it was such a great experience getting to meet a new bunch of students and work with the faculty to set up classrooms,  procedures, and traditions.
