Teaching Spring 2018:
CHDV 104 – Guidance for Young Children
CHDV 174 – Policies, Politics, and Ethics in Child Development

I started teaching at Palomar in 1986 after being invited to speak as a guest lecturer on the dynamics of incest families for CHDV 145.  After talking about how passionately I felt about parent education, I was invited to teach a 3 unit parenting class.  After a while I started teaching CHDV 115, then CHDV 104 and CHDV 110. I have also taught CHDV 100 and CHDV 145.  I had the privilege of designing and then teaching CHDV 172 as well as CHDV 174.  I love the diversity and depth of all the classes I teach.

I have spent my professional life in the fields of psychology and education working to develop and nurture learning communities that promote the development of healthy, whole human beings.  I have over 35 years of experience as a teacher, counselor and leader in public schools.  I have also taught at the college and university level for almost 27 years.

I maintain a small practice in individual and family psychotherapy, but spend most of my time training and consulting with districts in the areas of Social and Emotional Literacy, Conflict Resolution, and Inter-group Relationships.
