This is Ms. P.'s second year at Wallenberg. Ms. P. grew up in San Francisco, but left the city to earn her B.A. in English Literature, Urban Studies, and Medical Anthropology at the University of Michigan (GO BLUE!). Ms. P. then went on to work as an AmeriCorps youth worker in Boston, a U.S. Department of State Fulbright teacher in South Africa, and then as an English teacher at an independent school here in San Francisco. Before coming to Wallenberg, Ms. P. earned her Master's in Education from Harvard's Teacher Education Program. She now teaches English 1, 2, and Expository Reading and Writing -- three courses in which she and her students explore the power of language and experience the worlds of others. When Ms. P. isn't teaching or assisting the Wallenberg girls' soccer team, she can be found hiking in Yosemite or the Marin Headlands, biking by Ocean Beach, or playing round after round of the game Taboo with her family and friends...Ms. P. loves the students and faculty at Wallenberg and feels so lucky to part of such a wonderful community!
