She was recently named as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Teacher of the Year for the San Diego Area by the Air Force Association, then was named Teacher of the Year by that organization for Southern California, and was runner-up for Teacher of the Year for the entire State of California. Her students love her teaching style and sense of humor, and credit her for understanding and enjoying math like they have never done so before.

Lita has enormous patience and has developed many ways of explaining the same topic in order to reach students who may comprehend it better one way than another, and to deepen the students' understanding of the topic. It is clear that Lita enjoys both the subject matter and working with kids and young adults. She is great at working both with students who need to build up or catch up on their skills, and with students who want to perfect their skills and understanding and gain a competitive edge. As a trained lawyer-turned- math teacher, Lita has a unique, gentle way of asking students the questions which successfully teaches them to think and solve problems on their own. Her AP Calculus students have over a 90% pass rate on the AP exam, with most attaining scores of 4 or 5.
