Dear Parents and Students,
Here is a brief Intro to my educational background and teaching experiences. My educational degrees include a B.A. in Sociology from Stanford University, and a Master's in Public Administration from the University of Southern California. My California Teaching Credential is from National University. I am currently an Online Associate Faculty member at Ashford University teaching a variety of business courses: Introduction to Advertising, Principles of Marketing, Marketing Strategies, and Consumer Behavior.
Teaching online is rewarding because there are many opportunities to interact on an individual basis with students with interesting backgrounds, and careers from around the country.
I truly enjoyed teaching English, and Ancient Civilizations to 6th graders in the Cajon Valley Union School District for ten years. My classes were made up of a diverse community of students, and English was a second language for many of the students. In addition, I had the opportunity to help out individual students in after school Homework Club.
Scaffolding was the teaching method I used frequently in the classroom. Some of the steps included modeling, summarizing, predicting, clarifying, and reciprocal teaching. I believe that these are actually steps that can be applied in any learning situation.
Education has always been an important part of my life, along with the desire to share the love of learning.
