Film

I taught a class for the San Mateo Adult School in Film Appreciation recently. In preparation, I completed college and university courses in Film Studies which included American Cinema, American Film History, and Third World Cinema. In my personal time, I often watch The Actor's Studio which has interviewed many film actors and producers, as well as visiting film studios in New York, Burbank, and Orlando. It is one if my favorite subjects and I have viewed hundreds, if not thousands, of films. A few special areas of interest include films made from novels, American Classic Films, and British Colonial films especially those about India.

Elementary Education

Handwriting,

Handwriting

I taught Beginning Cursive Handwriting to third grade students in a Burlingame public school this year. There are a number of techniques such as "tow truck" and reference charts that can assist a student, as well as my own modeling of the writing process. My patience and techniques were complimented by my Co-teacher in the classroom. This is a process I both enjoy doing and teaching as I view handwriting as part of the Creative Writing process. I've taught Writing Workshops and creative journaling for over 8 years helping students to express themselves.
