My Bio

I grew up in Placerville, California.

I graduated from El Dorado High School.

I attended Brigham Young University for 2 years and transferred to Sacramento State University after I got married.  I graduated from Sacramento State in 1991.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish with a Minor in History.  I have a credential in Food Service and Hospitality as well.

My first job out of college was substitute teaching for 6 months and then I was hired at Yreka High as a Spanish teacher in August of 1991 where I have been ever since.

In the Fall of 2012 I began teaching the Culinary Arts classes.  Teaching cooking is great fun and I enjoy it very much.

I enjoy cooking and reading in my free time.
