Hi!  You found me! Thanks for checking in with my page. Send me a little email to let me know you dropped in, and I might be inclined to give you some extra credit (but that's our little secret)!
 
I enjoy working with the diverse population of students and the outstanding staff here at Valencia.  This year I am teaching Algebra 2/Trig Honors, Precalculus, and Geometry.  You can almost always track me down at lunch (first lunch this year), after school if you need help (and it doesn't have to be just math work), and I am usually in my room by 7:30 in the mornings as well.
 
A southern California gal through and through, I was born and raised in Orange County. I am a product of this district; though I won't mention what school I graduated from. I attended California State University, Fullerton, and spent a year abroad at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. I completed my degree in Mathematics Education in Heidelberg and returned to earn my Single Subject Credential at CSUF.  I am credentialed in Math, Geology, and German.  I recently completed my Masters in Mathematics Education at CSUF.
 
In my free time, when I'm not bogged down with grading papers, I enjoy spending time with friends and family. Whether it's heading off to worldly destinations with friends (one of whom is a fellow Tiger - Miss Leonard), shopping with my Mom, or spending time with my two dogs, Ulina and Oscar, the time I spend with friends and family is truly treasured.
