Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a teacher. My grandmother taught high school English and Latin. Correcting papers was one of my favorite pastimes. My childhood friends got tired of playing "school" with me. So, I decided to become a real teacher.
I was born in Chico, California. Go 49ers! I grew up in Santa Monica, then attended UCLA. Go Bruins! I have been teaching since 1996. Thankfully, Short Avenue has been my home since 2010. It is a magical place to be. Away from school, I enjoy watching the Lakers, Clippers, Dodgers, and of course, my own children playing sports.
