All ESL levels


I have been teaching ESL since 1997 and I have been in West Valley-Mission district since 2000. During my time as an ESL instructor, I have lived and/or worked in Asia, Central America, and the Caribbean. I have taught in IEP programs, adult education and universities. Community college work is my favorite venue because I enjoy the sense of community and helping students move on to bigger higher education goals.

When I'm not teaching, I'm taking some sort of class for personal growth or I'm traveling. I love learning.
