In 1976 I started my school career as a first grade student at St. Irenaeus Parish School. As a graduate, I began to truly understand how my experiences at St. Irenaeus had helped build a strong academic and spiritual foundation for my future. I earned my B.A. from California State University, Fullerton. After a career in early elementary educational product merchandising, I returned to CSUF and earned my teaching credential. I began teaching at St. Irenaeus in 2005. As an educator, I am grateful for the opportunity to teach students academically and spiritually at St. Irenaeus. It is my goal to help children build the strong foundation I am blessed to have.
