I am a retired Public School Teacher who taught young adults in Compton, Culver City, El Segundo, and Lawndale school districts before spending 30 years working for the Los Angeles Unified School District as an English and middle school teacher. As an educator, I stress motivational techniques and positive reinforcement.

Since I was dedicated to my students' progress, I created a magazine for our middle school to provide my students with the opportunity to write, edit, and publish their work.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught over 32 years with expertise in elementary and middle school with a K-9 credential. In addition, I am a Language Development Specialist, certified in English as a Second Language. I also have a credential in English, specializing in writing. My goal is to nurture the student through the learning process and continue to be dedicated to my students’ progress.

Flute

I have a teaching credential in Music, while playing the flute and piccolo for the past forty-five years. I have played for the Junior Philharmonic, All-City Youth Orchestra and prepared to go to Julliard School of Music. Instead, I chose teaching General Music (32 years) and flute and performing from time to time.

Handwriting

During my long teaching career, I taught handwriting to my elementary and ESl students. It is a dying art. Cursive handwriting is easier to read and it looks more professional. I always taught this during the curriculum for about 20 minutes a day in elementary school plus part of the instruction with ESL, especially when I used the whole language approach.

I also have a credential in English, specializing in writing. My goal is to nurture the student through the learning process and continue to be dedicated to my students’ progress.

Study Skills

I have experience in teaching study skills, which is the process of organizing and taking in new information and effective reading which I did during homeroom every day in middle school (K-9 teaching credential plus Language Development Specialist). I also helped my students with their class management during the study skills time period.
