During 2009-2011 I taught Graphic Design and Desktop Publishing at a high school which caters to students who are behind in credits. Based on my 30+ years in the Graphic Arts, Marketing and Newspaper industries, I hold a Clear Full-Time California Vocational Designated Subjects Teaching Credential in the following subjects: Printing & Graphics Occupations, Electronic Publishing; Computer Applications and Computer Systems Operations. During 2009-2011 I taught Graphic Design and Desktop Publishing at a high school which caters to students who are behind in credits.
The course, which I developed, prepared students for entry-level positions in the graphic arts field. With emphasis on the elements of design, typography and layout, students created art for flyers, logos, packaging, labels, invitations, programs, CD Covers, illustrations and more using industry standard software.
Additionally, I guided students in the concept, design and production of their yearbook two years in a row including photography, copy writing, design and production.
In addition to teaching, I have run my own freelance graphic design business since 1999.
I am the mother of two children and have patience and a sense of humor, or so I am told. I look forward to helping you succeed!
