Marina Del Rey Middle School and Performing Arts Magnet


Hello students and families! I'm very excited to be working as Magnet Coordinator at Marina this year! I am in my 16th year of working as an educator in Los Angeles Unified and my fourth year of working at Marina Del Rey Middle School. I will be focusing on supporting the academic and social-emotional growth of all of our students. I am looking forward to working with all of you!

I attended Whittier College for my undergraduate degree in psychology, the University of Southern California (go Trojans!) where I earned my master's degree in education, and Cal State Northridge where I earned my masters in educational leadership. 

I am the proud mother of two children. My daughter, Elise, is 11 years old and in the sixth grade. My son, Louie Jr. is 8 and in the third grade. 

I love reading and writing as well as singing, spending time with family and friends, swimming and technology. I also do ongoing work with various educational organizations. 
We continue our exciting campaign this year, MDR C.A.R.E.S. As part of my role at Marina, I will be collaborating with my colleagues to ensure that students are learning how to be persistent and mindful problem solvers both academically and socially. In addition, I look forward to collaborating with students, families, and community organizations. 
I look forward to a great year as a Mariner!
