Hello and Welcome!
My service in AUSD as a District Counselor (Bidwell/ Live Oak) began in 2007. My credentialed services began in 1986 at the Pittsburg Adult Ed. Center. Since 1986, I've served as: Work Production Supervisor for disabled adults, Adult Ed./Parent Teen Coord., Teacher for Elemenatry and Independent Study High School and an Independent Consultant for UC Davis GEAR-UP. I earned my degrees/credentials from CUSU Hayward. I have two children (37 and 35), three grandsons: 18, 4 and 1 and a grand-daughter due April 30, 2020.
My Motto: Be Still and Appreciate The Simple Things!
