Meet the Board
I have worked in education for the past 46 years as teacher, counselor, principal and consultant. I am also a certified core adjunct faculty member at National University, working with aspiring teachers, administrators and counselors. I enjoy serving as a board member of Community Collaborative Charter School. Doing so affords me, as well as all board members, an opportunity to affect policies, procedures, and programs that have a direct, positive impact upon students.
I have been a career educator for over 38 years beginning in the bay area as a Principal, Assistant Principal, Director of Student Activities, SARB/Truancy Intervention Coordinator, Special Education and Juvenile Court School teacher and then with the San Diego County Office of Education as Coordinator of Child Welfare, Attendance, and School Safety. I currently serve on the California Department of Education School Attendance Review Board and Southern California Charter School Boards. I have been Past President of the Southern Section California Association Coordinators of Child Welfare and Attendance and the Marin County Juvenile Justice Commission. I have been awarded Marin County Educator of the Year and have received a State Assembly Resolution for Dedication to Education and Marin County Board of Supervisors Resolution of Commendation for Service to the Educational Community.
My career started in education as a result of a startling realization, while working in juvenile probation, that there must be a way to have a positive impact on children so they might avoid the pitfalls of what I saw them experiencing in this early career work. I developed a vision and a dream that things could be better. Elementary education was a bright path to that end. 45 years later after having been an elementary school teacher, a special educator, a public elementary and private junior high principal, a college professor in my field of psychology and now an active board member on CCVS/CPCS has given me a rare opportunity to see that dream realized. CCVS/CPCS board membership is an extension of that dream and I am so grateful that it continues to this day and hopefully will as long as I am able to help. I am convinced that we do noble work together.
I have been in education for 15 years as both a teacher and as an administrator. Currently, I am an elementary school principal in the San Francisco Bay Area. I also instruct and design online education courses for a variety of universities around the country.
I spent 31 incredible years in education serving students, parents, and teachers. I taught 7th grade basic education which includes English, reading, writing and social science. At the high school level I taught world history and for ten years I was an administrator. I retired a few years ago and now I'm able to go deep sea fishing more often and travel to go salmon and bass fishing.
