Teaching Interests


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:
  • Pascal
  • C++
  • Java

  • 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:
