I was born and raised in Southern California and I attended Saddleback College before I transferred to UC San Diego to earn my bachelors in Pure Mathematics. I earned my teaching credential from Cal State Fullerton and started my teaching career at Capo. My husband and I live in Mission Viejo with our three
crazy wonderful boys (ages 2, 3, and 5).
This is my eighth year teaching high school mathematics here at Capo and I am so fortunate to be doing something I absolutely love. Not a day goes by that I am not amazed by how resilient, hilarious, and determined my students are to be successful. I consider it to be my responsibility to not only teach my students mathematical content, but to teach them to be better learners, critical thinkers, and to be self-reliant.
I also have the privilege of being adviser to the CVHS California Scholarship Federation, ComedySportz, and our school newspaper, CVHS Times. This year I am an Instructional Coach and teach Geometry and AP Calculus AB.
Parents and students, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about ANYTHING! I check my e mail on a regular basis and can usually respond within a day of receiving your e mail. Loop mail me here or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

AP Calculus AB Students
Please do not hesitate to come to me before or after class, during tutorial, lunch, and/or e mail me if you need help with anything. This class is situated in such a way that if you are slacking at any point, success is MUCH more difficult. Don't wait until you are behind – come see me as soon as you suspect a problem! School Loop is an EXCELLENT form of communication as I check my Loop Mail and e-mail several times a day.
Go to the AP Calculus AB website (link on sidebar) for more information about our class and policies.
