About Me

I have been teaching in Los Angeles for the last 11 years.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and teaching credential at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA. and my Masters in Education and preliminary Administrative credential at CSUN. I enjoy yoga, spinning, cooking, hiking with my two dogs and playing with my two sons.  I live in Pasadena with my husband and family.
