I am an experienced and highly qualified teacher with 30 years of experience in the field. My passion for education is matched by my dedication to student success, which is reflected in my extensive education and professional background. I hold a Master's Degree in Education, as well as teaching credentials in Multiple Subjects (K-12), Single Subjects in English and history, and Mild/Moderate Special Education. I received my Bachelor's degree, Master's degree, and teaching credentials at St. Mary's College and San Francisco State University.
In addition to my work in the classroom, I also supervise and train new teachers working on their teaching credentials at St. Mary's College. I have also taken numerous college counseling courses through UCLA, which allows me to provide comprehensive guidance to my students during the college application process. I have a deep understanding of the different subjects and skills which are necessary for success and have taught a variety of subjects, such as Special Education, AP European History, English, and World History.
Being also a parent, my own children have attended the AUHSD schools and have achieved great success, my daughter rowed crew at UCLA and graduated cum laude with a BA in Political Science and my son is a recruited scholarship water polo player at UCLA studying Political Science. As a member of the Western Association for College Admission Counseling (WACAC), I stay informed on the latest trends and developments in the field, and am well-equipped to guide my students through the college application process.
