She is currently working with the 1977 Women's Convention Project to document the efforts and activities of California's delegates, as well as continuing her involvement with the Glider Lehrman Institute's MA in American History program.
Faith has spent the past twenty years teaching a variety of the Social Sciences in high school. She currently teaches AP US History at Saratoga High School. Over this time, she has presented workshops on the use of historical newspapers in research, teaching writing and analysis to secondary students, and integrating research into the high school curriculum at annual conferences of the California Council for Social Sciences and National History Day in California.
In her spare time, Faith enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters. With both girls in competition dance, she employs much of her time at the studio and dance competitions. On school breaks, the family are most like to be found in the mountains, at the beach, or in search of live music.
