I graduated from Ventura College with my A.A. degree in 1991, and then went on to the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) to earn my B.A. degree in 1993. I became a substitute teacher after that to try teaching. I spent two years teaching kindergarten through 12th grade and enjoyed it very much. Then, I got a night job teaching ESL at Oxnard Adult Education, and I fell in love with the job. That was in 1995, and I have been teaching English as another language since then. I went on to get my M.A degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at Azusa University in 2001. After I earned my M.A. I began teaching at the community college level. I taught at College of the Canyons, Los Angeles Mission College, Glendale Community College, and Ventura College. In 2004 I was offered a full-time position at Ventura College, and have been here ever since. I have taught every level, and most skills and have found all of the students to be wonderful. I cannot imagine a better job.
