I'm Iranian-American living in San Francisco. I came to US a few short years before the Iranian Revolution of '79 to pursue higher education. I received my B.S. degree from Golden Gate University in San Francisco. Years later after getting married and having children, I got my Master's Degree in Humanities from San Francisco State University. I began my teaching career in humanities at Diablo Valley College. Since 2013, I've been teaching humanities at SRJC and enjoying it.

My area of interest include the culture of Iran, India, and China. I have taught the following courses: Humanities 5, World Humanities; Humanities 8, Comparative Mythology; Hum 21, Humanities of the Middle East; and Humanities 7, Introduction to Humanities.

One of my interests in teaching humanities is to encourage my students to ask questions and think critically and become curious learners.
