I have been an English teacher since 1986. I attended San Diego State University where I earned a BA in LInguistics. I received my Teaching Credential from Point Loma Nazarene University. I started teaching in the Poway Unified School District at Mt. Carmel High School, then helped open a new high school, Rancho Bernardo High School, where I taught for 11 years. I returned to the Ventura County area in 2000, and took a break from my teaching career to raise three children. They are now 20, 22 and 25! In 2010, I returned to teaching, and worked in a few other school districts until I found my forever home here at Agoura High School in 2014.
