I'm excited to be a part of the faculty at Sycamore. I've taught and supported this school since its inception. I'm a firm believer that guiding children to take charge of their learning creates a recipe for successful lives. My B.A. was earned at Cal-State Los Angeles and my Master Degree courses from Chapman University. I'm currently working to complete my Preliminary Administrative Services Credential. I love what I do!  This will be my 2nd year teaching HomeStudy.  Come join the adventure!
