About Me

So you want to know about me....

I live in southern California and appreciate that fact every single day! I love the weather, the lifestyle, that we're close to the ocean (it's a 10 minute walk from my house), and pretty much everything about it. However, I really love to travel and have been to almost all the continents; I used to take 2 trips a year (pre pandemic). We like to go to cities where we can explore, go to museums, shop, and enjoy the hustle and bustle, but sometimes go off the beaten path for a change.

I am a single mom with an 21-year-old daughter. We share a house with my parents and all feel very lucky to live in a multi-generational household. In addition to traveling, we both love to read, go for walks, and dance (she is MUCH better than me). My daughter is in college in New York so the house seems very quiet these days and I am reading much more!

I taught high school World History and American Government for 15 years before becoming the Teacher Librarian at the same high school in August 2008. After four years, I became a Technology Integration Coach in my school district and in 2016 started my current position as my district's Social Studies Coach so I work with all of our secondary social studies teachers on curriculum and technology.
