In 2000, she was awarded the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Certification and in that year, she joined the Performance-Based Leadership Team for implementing Performance-Based Assessments to measure student achievement of the learning standards. In 1999, she served on the Task Force of Mentor Teachers (LAUSD) who developed Standards-Based Lessons for the Division of Instructions.
