Welcome to our Cougar Family.

My background stems from life as a military child traveling the world and experiencing different cultures.  I am one of seven children and was able to settle into San Diego during my formative teenage years when my father retired from the Air Force.  I attended San Diego State University earning my bachelors in Mathematics along with my teaching credential prior to deciding to backpack through Europe for 3 months.  I was able to meet people from all over the world which led me to the San Francisco Bay Area for 10 years working in an Academy setting with at-risk students.  This led me back to Europe for my second backpacking trip for six weeks taking my mother along allowing her to see the ‘Sound of Music’ country which she has always dreamed about.  While in the Bay Area I met my husband, Paul, and had two wonderful children.  We decided that we wanted our kids to grow up near all of their cousins, so San Diego here we came. 

I have been teaching at SCHS since the fall of 2001 when there were just freshman and sophomores gracing our halls.   I earned my Masters of Education from Point Loma Nazarene and each day I feel like I am continually learning and growing.  I love teaching and sharing new ideas with students.  My daughter is currently a junior and my son is a freshman.  When I started here he was a babe in my arms.  Time sure flies when you are having fun.  When I started here he was a babe in my arms.

Besides teaching mathematics I also teach AVID and am the AVID Coordinator.  Through AVID and my role as a Staff Developer I have been able to work with teachers from all over the world teaching them AVID strategies and methodologies that work for all students.  AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.  I hope people remember me for what I was able to give back to others through my time and commitment in helping them succeed.  I love teaching and know this is what I was put on this earth to do.
