I began my education with a degree in communications and worked in the area of advertising, marketing, and public relations. I've always enjoyed writing in school and for my own enjoyment. I'm a Fellow of the UCI Writing Project and have taken many courses as an adult through their program. I returned to school to earn my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, as my passion was always to teach! I've taught in both public and private schools, I've done tutoring and I teach the summer program at Saddleback College. Currently, I teach Creative Writing and English Composition to ages third through eighth. I especially enjoy teaching kids on a one-on-one basis. I get satisfaction from helping them achieve their learning goals and seeing their growth. I love teaching, because I believe I'm able to make a difference in the lives' of children. I can't think of a more important and valuable profession.
I hold a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from California State University, Long Beach. I have taught full time for more than ten years in both public and private schools, including the International Baccalaureate Program. I have conducted reading intervention programs, as well as taught writing courses at Saddleback College for Kids Program for the past five years. I have tutored for approximately four years.
