I have been teaching within PUHSD for 26 years, beginning at Perris High and moving to Heritage when it opened in 2007. I have my Bachelor's in English and Drama from Point Loma, my Master's in Theatre from Tulane, and my Doctorate in English from Trinity. I love to read fiction, and I always have several books that I am reading or will be reading next. I also love to get students' recommendations on good books to read--teen readers are great judges of a read-worthy book!
I am a mom of three, two of which graduated from Heritage in 2012 and 2017. I am also a dog mom and grandma (I have grand-pups!) and am trying my best to garden, pleased with the few tomatoes and cucumbers I have harvested, and that my other plants are growing and flowering, and are not dead...yet.
I have traveled throughout Europe, mostly with student groups, and often find myself going through travel-withdrawal, and wondering when I can take a group of students to Europe again. If you want to go in few years, let me know...
