Ms. Reinhertz has been teaching at CCSF since 1995.

She states that "the big question for most teachers is how best to present information so students can comprehend, retain and apply it. As a teacher, my goal is to think about the final learning outcome and map a path from there to the students goal; I believe using student input and engagement is critical to the process. In addition, we all need to be engaged and challenged by the course content and encourage to create a collaborative learning environment. My goal is to foster an active learning community where students feel safe to speak out and question, me, themselves and each other."

Board Member, La Cocina;

She has been published in "Women for Wine Sense".

In her leisure time, Ms. Reinhertz enjoys running, swimming, yoga, reading, eating out, biking and baseball.
