ABOUT ME

Born and raised in Southern California, I am the product of the California public school system. I have a BA Degree in Mathematics from UCLA, obtained my CA Single Subject Teaching Credential in Mathematics from CSUN and completed my MS Degree in Education from Walden University, specializing in integrating technology in the curriculum.

Math has played a prevalent role in my life for the whole of my career. Prior to having children, I worked in the entertainment industry dealing primarily in business management. Then, for many years, my husband and I ran our own management firm. In the late 1980's we moved our business and our family from the westside to Agoura Hills. As my three children grew, I became active in the PFCs of their schools (from Sumac to Willow then Lindero and AHS), serving mainly as treasurer. My involvement with the district broadened when I became the computer instructor for Willow Elementary, a position I held for six years. It was there, due to my weekly interaction in the computer lab with Willow's more than 500 students, that I discovered how much I enjoyed teaching. I realized that this love of teaching combined with my experiences with (and passion for) math would result in an extremely rewarding career in math education. I made the decision to get my teaching credential, and for the past fifteen years have been teaching at Lindero, and truly loving it.

I believe that all students can be confident and competent in math with the right instruction, encouragement, and support. Furthermore, the math that they learn in their secondary education will carry them in many aspects of their adult life.
