I have a BS in Math-Computer Science from UCLA.
I began my teaching career in 1978, at Woodrow Wilson High School
in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
In 1994, I began teaching at Gabrielino High School in San Gabriel.
Throughout my career I have taught math and computer science.
I feel lucky that I have been able to combine my love for math and computer programming
with the rewarding career of teaching.
I have taught Pre-Algebra through Trigonometry
and the following programming languages:
I have also been an advisor for the Mathematics, Engineering, Science
Achievement (MESA) program for 18 years. MESA encourages underrepresented
minorities to pursue careers in math, science, engineering and computer science.

For the past three years, I have coached a Botball robotics team as an
after school activity. Botball is a national competition organized by the
KISS Institute in Norman, OK. Students create robots using Lego pieces, motors
and sensors attached to a motherboard. The students write programs in the C
language and download the programs onto the motherboard. The robots are
completely controlled by these programs, i.e. these are not remote controlled robots.
Botball gives students the opportunity to become young engineers, combining
their talents in building and computer programming along with testing and
trouble shooting. For more information about Botball, visit their website:
