“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” (Mark Twain)

Educational Philosophy:

"Students may not remember what they learned in your classroom, but they will always remember how you made them feel." I believe in hands-on learning where the student is in charge of their own education and I am here to help facilitate that learning. Students will now only learn the content, but they will learn skills to help them be successful in the future.

What I value most about ERHS:

Eagle Rock Jr/Sr High is a family. Teachers, counselors, administrators, and other support staff work together to ensure that students have every opportunity to succeed at this school.

About Me:

I am a BRUIN! UCLA is a major part of my life and I will bleed blue forever! Besides being a History major at UCLA, I received a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership. I have two beautiful daughters and my husband is also a history teacher in another district. It is lucky that we are both teachers because we love to travel all around the world during the Summer. My Grandfather and my parents were both teachers. Teaching is in my blood!

Education:

College Degree/Major Year
UCLA BA in History
