Where did you go to High School?
I attended Edison High School and graduated in 1978.
What are your favorite movies?
My all-time favorite movie is “Twister.” It is what started me on becoming infinitely curious about tornadoes and other forms of severe weather. I have had a meteorologist from a Sacramento TV station give an interactive, fun talk to our sixth grade classes at Woodbridge School the last two years about severe weather. The students get very involved.
What type of music do you listen to? Favorite artists?
I enjoy all genres of music. I particularly enjoy “Old School” 70’s and 80’s R&B. I enjoy Gloria Estefan, Earth, Wind and Fire, but also newer artists, such as John McLaughlin and Matt Wertz.
What is one thing that your students would never guess about you?
My students would be surprised, and probably embarrassed to know that I am a big music lover and I really like to sing.
What is your favorite food or foods?
I LOVE Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Greek and foods which use Middle Eastern spices and flavors. Pasta, pizza, tacos and many more are my favorites. I LOVE to cook, which has become a passion of mine the in the last eight or so years, and employing myriad spices and herbs to my dishes is great fun for me.
