I think learning should be something we engage in because we enjoy it, not just because it's necessary. Based on that idea, I teach and encourage my students in such a way that they enjoy learning, too. My students have told me that I am tough, but fair. They have also said I am funny, yet someone they can come to with a problem and know they'll get help. I respect my students, no matter what their age.

As a literacy instructor and previous literacy program director, I am aware of what the current research shows and which methods and techniques are being used for teaching...children and adults, English speaking and non-English speaking. I am familiar with and have used this information in my teaching. Knowing that K-6 education is succinctly described as learning to read (K-2grade) and reading to learn (3-6grade), and that students need to be active participants in their own learning activities, I have spent many years using a student-centered approach to addressing individual needs and goals.
I completed the TESOL Certification courses at the University of Hawaii, Hilo in 2005 at the top of my class.
