Angela’s love for the outdoors led her to obtain a degree in Forestry from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. She enjoyed her Outdoor Education courses and wanted to teach young children about natural resources and how to take care of them, so she earned a Clear Multiple Subject CLAD teaching credential from California Lutheran University. While going to the university, Angela worked for the United States Forest Service as a seasonal employee. She worked on trail, watershed management, and tree-climbing crews for several seasons. During the past 16 years, Angela has taught kindergarten, third and fourth grade.
Angela’s interests include spending time with family, hiking, camping, reading, and creative writing. She lives in Ojai with her two children, Sean and Grace.
