I grew up in Rancho Cucamonga and attended Etiwanda High School and CSU Bakersfield. I was the first in my family to attend college and graduated many years ago 😉. I was an Academic Counselor at CSUB serving first generation and underrepresented students. I was a scholarship coordinator and was able to award full 4-year scholarships to many students. And I began teaching math at Shafter High and West High school before becoming a Bear.
I have been teaching math at AHS since 2006. I have taught most classes here and love working with my department. Link Crew 💚 was established in 2007 and our PRIDE Team 🐻 was created in 2014, both of which I helped found and both have made me a better person. I have been a club advisor to various clubs on campus and am currently advising our 🌈 SAGA Club because I believe all students should be safe and comfortable being themselves. I believe in kindness, keeping an open mind, and personal growth.
I know ALL students can do math; some just need a little more effort and support than others. Let me be that support for you. 😊
Students with tons of PRIDE will be successful.
Participation, Responsibility, Integrity, Determination, Empathy.
