Baseball

In junior high I played baseball for three years where I managed to make the City of Commerce all star team that toured 7 cities in Mexico representing The United States. I also played one year junior varsity and two years varsity for Bell Gardens High School. Upon graduation I received a letter from the Los Angeles Dodger's organization stating that I had been scouted for team tryouts. I didn't make the team but it was a wonderful experience.

Basketball

I played junior high basketball for three years where I was named most valuable player every year. I also achieved the "Athlete of the Year" award my third year there. In high school I played basketball for three years where I again was voted the most valuable player by my coaches. During college I became a coach for the City of Commerce Parks and Recreation Department where I coached boys and girl of all age groups along with being a referee when needed.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a California school teacher with a Bilingual Multiple Subjects Credential. (Spanish). I have taught school for 30 years and have taught thousands of children in math, English, ESL, history, science, and p.e. I have also run a bilingual program at many schools where I would transition the children from total Spanish to complete immersion in English in three years. (documentation/resume available).

Softball

I received the top "Athlete of the Year" award in junior high where I excelled in baseball, flag football, and baseball. In high school I lettered in varsity baseball two years and was scouted by the Los Angeles Dodgers at 17 years of age. I would love to work with your child in softball and look foward to meeting you. Thank you.
