I am fortunate enough to be doing exactly what I had hoped to do professionally: teach prospective teachers about adolescent development in the hope that that understanding will make them “developmental allies” to their students.
When I am not teaching, advising or supervising in the Single Subject Credential Program, I am on the board of the Alliance for the Study of the Holocaust and Genocide at SSU and a school speaker for the Alliance. I am also the assistant faculty advisor for Hillel at SSU. I also teach parenting teens classes for the Petaluma schools and recently became part of a community group of restorative justice practitioners in Petaluma.
