World History Teacher

Welcome to World History! While you will likely learn a lot about me this year, this serves as a short introduction.

I have been serving at Berean Christian High School since 2017 as the World History teacher. I am married and have two beautiful daughters. My oldest daughter graduated in 2021 and my youngest will graduate in 2024. Both have had the privilege of attending Berean Christian.  

We have attended New Harbor Community Church in Benicia for the past 12 years.  My husband and I serve in the Children and Youth ministries. I have been teaching professionally since 1998, and have served in many different teaching positions in both private and public schools, preschool through high school. 


I have lived in the Bay Area my entire life and have attended local schools in the area. I grew up in Martinez and attended Alhambra High School. For college, I attended Diablo Valley College, San Francisco State University, majoring in Social Work, Cal State Hayward (now Cal State East Bay), for my Masters in Education, concentrating in Curriculum and Instruction, and lastly, Chapman University, where I received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.  I have also taken Bible classes through Moody College’s online program. 

Other Duties

This year, I have the honor and privilege of being the Faculty Advisor for the School Newspaper. I am excited to embark on this new journey.  

Favorite Scriptures

Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through CHRIST WHO strengthens me.”

Joshua 1:9  “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
