I grew up in Southern California and I graduated from UCLA (Go Bruins!) with a B.A. in History. During my gap year I worked at the U.S. Department of Education in Washington D.C. From there I moved to New York to attend Columbia University for graduate school. My hobbies include reading, cooking, and traveling with my husband and two daughters. This will be my 20th year of teaching and my 19th here at Culver City High School. I teach Global Issues Honors and World History.
