Nasrin Naraghi is an Iranian American living in San Francisco. I came to the 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 received 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 passion in teaching humanities is to excite students about studying different cultures and to give them new perspectives and new ways of thinking.
