About the Teacher

I have been teaching for the past 21 years, with many of those years in the Los Angeles Unified Public Schools where I assisted in the Reading Recovery Program. This is my 14th year at St. Francis. I graduated from CSUN, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Studies. I also hold a Multiple Subject CLAD Credential. I am an Apple Teacher and Seesaw Ambassador. I am originally from West LA.  I have been living in Orange County for the past 15 years, and for the past 13 years in Yorba Linda. I have been married for 16 years to my wonderful husband, Lou. We have two boys. Mateo is 15 and is a graduate of SFA. He now attends Servite High School. Lorenzo is almost 11 and is in 5th grade here at SFA. Both of my boys play hockey, and we are big L.A. King fans!! I love being with my family, and watching hockey, the Food Network and HGTV.  I also LOVE going to Disneyland and Lake Mead with my family! Teaching has always been my passion, and I'm so glad to share these good times with you!
