I have been teaching ESL since 1984. During that time, I have taught all levels from literacy to TOEFL preparation. Since I enjoy travel, I taught English as a Foreign Language in Taiwan and China. Besides being a language teacher, I am a language student. I studied Spanish while living with host families in Mexico and Spain. The whole world of second language teaching and learning is fascinating and enjoyable. For me, ESL teaching is the best job in the world.

I have been teaching ESL for more than 20 years at colleges and universities throughout Southern California and for the past 6 years here at Ventura College, both at the Main Campus and Santa Paula Campus. I cannot imagine a better or more rewarding career.
While studying French at the University of California, Los Angeles, I spent a semester in France before earning my Bachelor's Degree. I also have a Master's Degree in TESOL from the University of Southern California and a teaching credential from California State University Northridge. I have had the wonderful opportunity to travel to various countries throughout the world, and as an ESL teacher, I have an equally wonderful opportunity to learn more about these countries and others through the eyes of my students.
I have taught ESL for over 25 years in North Africa, New York and in California. After receiving a Masters in TESOL from Columbia University, I decided to pursue a law degree. My Juris Doctorate is from The University of the Pacific Law School. After practicing law for a short time, I realized that there was no better job than being an ESL teacher, so I returned to teaching.
