I teach, it's what I do. From the time I was in high school, I wanted to be a teacher. I had the most incredible U.S. History teacher for the 11th grade. It is because of her that I became one. She is my example, my reason for being in public education.

I have been a teacher for 14 years and I have taught English, World Geography and U.S. History in Grades 7 and 9 and at the college level. I have a Humanities degree from Stephen F. Austin State University and Texas Teacher Certification in Composite Social Studies, English, English-Language Arts and Reading. I also have a Master's Degree in History from University of Houston - Clear Lake. Currently, I am an adjunct history professor at Houston Community College - Northwest.

Whether teaching or tutoring, I am always looking for a better way to explain the concepts and events covered in whatever subject I am working with. I am always looking for a way to make the subject real, to allow my students have that 'Wait! I get it!' moment.

I firmly believe that anyone can learn. I am one of those people who can truly say that I love my job.Please contact me at my profile so I can help your child, or yourself, reach educational goals you have set.
