Hi, thanks for visiting my web-page.  This is my 13th year at Valencia and my 19th year teaching overall.  I, like many other teachers here, graduated from VHS (Class of '92).  From there I attended UCLA where I earned a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biology (Pre-Med).  After my undergraduate studies I attended National University where I completed coursework for my teaching credential.  I am credentialed to teach Biology and Chemistry.  In the summer of 2015 I completed the requirements for a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University.  This year I will be teaching one period of AP Chemistry, one period of Regular Chemistry, and three periods of Honors Chemistry.  This year will be a busy one for me but I look forward to the challenges ahead.
