Greetings, fellow students of Life!

As one who has a few more years behind her than you, I would love the opportunity to help you catch up on whatever you may want to improve upon, or study for that all-important next step!! Having retired a few years ago, I have almost 25 years of teaching experience ranging from kindergarten through college in a variety of curriculum areas and I miss my students (you!).

Specifically, I have held both a Standard Elementary Teaching Credential and a Specialist Learning Handicapped Credential. The latter qualified me to teach in all areas of Learning Disabiities including Reading, Writing, Spelling and Math skills as well as with Severely Emotionally Disturbed and ADD/ADHD inflicted students. I have also deveoped curriculum for - and taught - adult level ESL classes, Middle and High School Special Education classes and authored innumerable IEPs.

More recently, I was the Department Chair of the Legal Programs at PCC and taught - as well as designed curriculum for - college courses in a multitude of areas of law. I also practiced law in the Oregon, including the representation of juveniles.

Please contact me if you think I can be of service to you!

Regards, and here's to your success!
