Learning and teaching have always been great passions of mine, and The REALM has allowed me to share these passions with amazing groups of kids.  My journey with The REALM began when my children took classes here and I became impressed with its educational offerings, its teachers, and its supportive learning environment.  It’s precisely this learning environment that encourages kids to ask questions and to seek answers.

I began to teach here, using my Art History and History degrees from UCLA, to guide children through literature and help them see the stories within the stories.  I love to help kids ask the big questions, and to look for the small details that make reading a joy.
