I have been an instructor here at Coastline for the past 12 years. The classes I teach are History 180 and 185
(Western Civilizations) as a telecourse, and History 180 (Political Science) as an internet course in the Distance
Learning Department. I also have taught Political Science 110 as a bridge class for Coastline.  In the past I have
taught California History at  Concordia University. I grew up in San Gabriel Valley here in California and then
attended UC Irvine and majored in Social Science. After that I obtained my teaching credential also from UC Irvine
(Home of the Anteaters.. Ha! Ha!). And I obtained my Masters Degree in the year 2000. I have been very lucky to be
teaching history in Orange County for almost 35 years. I love California, but enjoy traveling to all the other states on
vacation and sight seeing  (especially when I can  get in a little golf) .
