I’m a proud fangirl and I love to show this side to my friends and students! I think my enthusiasm is contagious, and oftentimes I discover that I share beloved characters with many other people. It’s a wonderful way to connect and make friends.

I write a blog about all these fandoms that I love.
You’ll always find me at SDCC, fangirling about everything!
I’ve started an after school club for the next generation of fans called Random Fandom where we explore different fandoms in depth and create cool crafts for each one.
And I love to wear my fandom on my sleeve, so to speak. All my students have seen me show up to work wearing my TARDIS skirt or Return of the Jedi necklace from Her Universe!
What is her favorite quote or personal motto?
“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and… bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant.” From “Vincent and the Doctor”
What is her favorite fangirl item that she cannot live without?
My bracelet that has Clara’s quote from “The Dalek Asylum”: “Rescue me, chin boy, and show me the stars.”
