I have been teaching for 25 years with the last 8 years being at Meridian Academy. Math has always been my favorite subject so I am currently teaching Common Core High School Math IAA and Common Core High School Math II. I believe that all students can do math if they decide they can. I received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching in 2009 and the Meridian District Teacher of the Year in May 2014. I have a BA from Johnston College at the University of Redlands in Juvenile Delinquency Prevention, a MA from Claremont Graduate School in Education and a MS in Mathematics Education from Walden University.
I have been married for 41 years to a wonderful husband. We have 2 married children and 3 grandchildren with another due the end of September. Whenever we can, we drive to northern and southern California to see our children and grandchildren.
