About Me!


Welcome to my blog for my EDUC407 course.

I just started to attend the University of La Verne this Spring. Before University of La Verne, I attended Citrus Community College where I received my associate degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences. I decided to come to La Verne for several different reasons. First, its super close to my house. Second, I have heard nothing but excellent things about ULV’s teaching program which really drew me to La Verne. As a result, I applied to ULV and got accepted! I was so excited and still am excited to be able to further my education here at La Verne. After I receive my bachelors here at La Verne, I hope to get my credential and masters here as well.


In my personal life, I am married and have a three year old son. My son is my mini-me and blesses my life in a tremendous way! I also work part-time for In-N-Out and have worked there for five years now. Currently, my husband, my son, and I live in La Verne with my parents until we can find a place of our own.  When I am not working or doing homework, I love to go to Disneyland, go to the beach, go on hikes, attend sporting events and just spend time with my family.

Also, I love to take pictures. My family says I am picture crazy because I have pictures everywhere (in my house) and all over my phone. I just think pictures are incredible because pictures capture special memories and moments in one snapshot! In the future I want to travel the world. I think it would be wonderful to travel and see other cultures,their customs, and their traditions. I can’t wait to do that in the future with my family.

  1. HI Raquel,

    Your son is too cute! Good for you handling the task of wife,mother and student. It is a lot! You sound as though you got it:).

    It was nice to speak with you the other night. I think we have a pretty cool team. I look forward to working with you.

    I think between the five of us we should be able to manage our technical skills and have a great semester.

    Enjoy your weekend, see ya on the blog!

  2. Hello Raquel, let me start off by saying that your son is so cute what a blessing. The University of La Verne is awesome. I am amazed at the quality of teaching and learning that goes on at the University. When you’re finished with your credential you will feel prepared to enter the classroom and teach. I look forward to working with you in this class. Have a great weekend.
    Smiles, Molly
