I have the privilege of teaching, yet another year, here in the Santa Ynez Valley Union High School District. My teaching career at
Santa Ynez began in 1983 as a Home Economics teacher.Later my position evolved into teaching Health to Freshmen on the Santa Ynez campus and Electives at Refugio High School.
I attended and earned an A.A. at Santa Barbara City College, then Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo for a
Bachelor of Science degree and Teaching Credential. I am married and have two terrific children ages 21 and 18, life is good.
I am on the Refugio campus EVEN days for one period. Students will work independently on topics selected at the first of
each semester. It will be important for students to communicate with me, if they have questions or concerns, during the time
I am on campus or via email listed above. Students need to use class time wisely in order to complete the needed credits.
The elective courses provided are Child Development, Family Living, Foods & Nutrition, Housing & Interior Design,
Home Ec. Survey, Art and coming soon Career Choices.
Students will be able to earn up to 10 credits in each course.
Credits are earned with a combination of textbook/packet work and projects.
Individual descriptions of course credits will be explained in the website tab for each course.
