A teacher of 25 years, I have 17 years with The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and 3 years as a Vice Principal and Principal. I have developed curricula from English as a Second Language to subjects on the General Education Diploma which includes English reading, essay writing, science, biology and health. I have taught at Junior Colleges and State Colleges. There really is no substitute for experience.

I believe in developing Individual Educational Plans (IEP) and lesson plans for each student in detail. I follow that proper prior practice prevents poor performance( The 6 P's of success). I believe in "life long learning" as a concept.

Currently, I hold a valid California Teaching Credential, grades K-12, and a Clear Administrative Services Credential. I am a proven leader. I have won and earned several awards and certifications.
