After completing my general education course work at Mt. SAC, I transferred to Cal Poly Pomona where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics in 1987. I went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Mathematics from Cal State Fullerton in 1992.
I began my career by teaching part-time at Cal Poly Pomona and Mt. SAC from 1987-1992.
In 1992, I was hired as a full-time professor at Mt. SAC. While working on my undergraduate
degree, I was a grader, a tutor, and math secretary at Cal Poly. My first experience
teaching math was in the 1987 Summer Bridge Program at Cal Poly where I taught an
all-female class of first-generation college students. From there, I went on to become
a Teaching Assistant and adjunct professor. I have always enjoyed math and am so
glad I chose this career. I look forward to meeting a new group of students each
semester who all come to class with their unique backgrounds. To watch students mature
mathematically from where they start the course to where they finish is incredibly
I was the Department Chair of the Mathematics and Computer Science Department from 1997-2008, but my love for teaching has taken me back into the classroom.
