Education- M.A. in TESOL from Azusa Pacific University

Currently Teaching: Beginning Literacy

I taught EFL in China from 1995-1997.  I also taught ESL at Bakersfield College, Mt. Sac Community College, and UCI Irvine Extension. 

Outside the classroom I enjoy baking, cooking, traveling outside the United States, watching my children participate in sports, and dancing.  In the classroom, in addition to teaching, I enjoy learning about other cultures from my students. It’s hard to know what’s more exciting: the first day of class, when I meet my new students for the first time, or the last day of class, when I see that my students have greater confidence in their use of English.
