I graduated with my M.A. in Sociology from Cal State University, Fullerton. I have been teaching sociology for ten years. I have taught at Cal State Fullerton, Cypress College, Golden West College, Saddleback College, and National University. I have been teaching at Saddleback College for over eight years. I was recently elected secretary of the South Orange County Community College District Faculty Associaton. I have taught several different sociology courses including: Introduction to Sociology, Social Problems, Marriage and Family, Research Methods, Minority Group Relations, Social Inequality, Sex and Gender, Family Violence, and Juvenile Delinquency. Currently I teach Introduction to Sociology, Marriage and Family, and Women in Contemporary Society. I teach a couple traditional classes on campus and teach several online classes.
I love sociology (I am a sociologist 24/7). My goal is to have my students have a greater understanding of our society and the individuals within it.
On a personal note, my most important job is that of a mom. I have three children: a stepson (23 years old), a son (8 years old), and a daughter (5 years old). Needless to say I like to keep busy!
Some other bits of information: My hobbies include: working out, reading, cooking, knitting, and playing with my kids.
