I began my career as an English teacher in 1986 at Westwood...and never left. For the first 28 years, I instructed a variety of mandatory and elective courses, both advanced and regular.  In  2005, I began teaching in the International Baccalaureate Program and then became IB Middle Years Coordinator for our site, the CAS Coordinator for grades 9-12, and the Extended Essay Co-Coordinator.  I currently work Tuesday through Thursday, from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm.  

I consider myself fortunate to have been honored by a former student who has created a yearly scholarship in my name, and to also been chosen by my colleagues as Westwood's 2008-09 Teacher of the Year.

I earned my undergraduate degree, a BA in Education, from Arizona State University and a Masters in Educational Administration from Chapman University, San Diego.
