Raena grew up on the PV Peninsula and went to LA Harbor College before graduating with a B.A. in Drama from UC, Irvine. She went on to spend several years in the Entertainment Industry before realizing teaching was her true passion and obtaining a multiple-subject teaching credential from CSU, Fullerton. She taught in the Hawthorne Elementary School District as a classroom teacher before taking a few years off with her new daughter. She returned to the classroom part-time teaching computers at two South Bay Catholic schools before being blessed to find RHLS. She has since gone on to earn a Masters Degree in Technology Education and added 2 more beautiful children to her amazing family.
She tries to inspire the students with the idea that “knowledge is power” and with the right technology skills they can learn all they want to know. She also reminds them, “No one was born knowing how to type…but how cool would it be if we were?!”
