Welcome to my page!
After teaching mathematics at Mission College for the past 20 years and working intermittently as department chair and division chair, I am officially transitioning into the Dean of Math, Science and Engineering position starting January, 2018. My job is to support the 7 departments inside this division. The departments are: Astronomy, Biological Science, Chemistry, Engineering, Mathematics, Nutritional Science and Physics.
Our Division has well-qualified faculty and staff who are seasoned professionals and outstanding teachers. As a team, we are here to provide you with quality STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education with various academic pathways and extra-curricular activities such as the involvement in our STEM Week activities. We also collaborate with on-campus programs such as the Honors Transfer Project and the grant-funded programs such as MESA, HSI-STEM, AANAPISI and STEM Core, to name a few.
If you have any questions related to STEM, please do not hesitate to contact me either by email or just come by my office. I will be happy to assist you.
All the best!
