Although she grew in the rural community of Sutter in northern Calif., she taught her whole teaching career in Los Angeles with forty years at one small elementary school where she taught first through fifth grade over the decades. In her final years as a public school teacher, she also mentored new teachers and helped the school district in the credential process from beginning teachers.
