Sheryl L Nomelli, M.A., History

Adjunct Faculty Member
Alumni Hall Adjunct Office


My love for history developed as a re-entry college student when i signed up for a GE history class and was blown away by how interesting it was and how much I did not know about the world I lived in as an adult.  From then on I was hooked and wanted to inspire the same kind of eye-opening interest in others that I enjoyed.  I have been fortunate enough to do some reseasrch in various places in the United States and Europe that have broadened my experiences and perspective historically.  I have taught a variety of subjects in history at California State University, Northridge, College of the Canyons, Moorpark College, and California Lutheran University.
