 Hello and Go Warriors!

   I am delighted to be part of a great administration and teaching staff here at Westwood High. I was born and raised and beautiful Los Angeles, California. I have a rather large family 10 bothers and sisters. With so many siblings i decided to have only one child, her name is Austen and she is 17. I have been married 23 years to my husband Perry, who is a LTC in the Army, a High School Administrator and teacher as well. Yes he is a man who wears many hats! That's why I married him!

   Before I found the beautiful field of education, I was in the military (Air Force) and a corporate Paralegal. While I enjoyed my past profession, I found that I had more to give and something was missing. I started subbing and found that teaching was what I was called to do.  I have been in education for several years now and love it. I am a certified Special Education LD teacher, and hold a certification to teach Social Studies as well. Currently, I teach Senior English to aspiring seniors and I love it.!

  My hobbies are singing, movies, reading  and yes traveling! I have been to Germany and Turkey! I moved to beautiful Phoenix Arizona 5 years ago from beautiful Atlanta, GA.. I love Arizona for all it has to offer. I look forward everyday to waking up to the beautiful sunshine, I love it! I love the big AZ! I am excited about being here and excited about teaching, and inspiring all the young students that come along my path!
